Someone across the continent, a few countries away from you, someone you know very well and talk to every day, do you know how they are right now? Maybe, maybe not. But have you ever felt something tingling whenever something wrong happens to them?
Have you ever felt something really strange that makes you feel uneasy and you are not quite sure what it is about? You don’t know what it is that is making you feel so, or what is it that you are so worried about even though you cannot see anything to be worried about.
That strange feeling when you don’t know exactly what happened but you know something went terribly wrong. And a few hours later when everything calms down, you get a call from the person miles away from you, telling you what happened to them through the day and that’s when you realize what went wrong.
Or have you received a call from someone right before you are about to make an important decision or when you are in a problem? And they tell you over the phone that they were thinking about you and called you to check up on you. Then you tell them what is happening around you and they advice you against the decision you were going to make?
These are the connection. Real life connection that actually still work. Even with the boundless connectivity of the cellphone and the social media keeping us close and distracted, the oldest way of communicating still seems to work.
The only problem now is that it is not as common as cellphone and it couldn’t be bought in minutes, it takes years to develop a connection that rings across continents.
