Holiday@Home

Mick Fleming on Monday, December 21, 2009 at 11:39:25 am

For a road warrior, there really is no place like home for the Holidays.  Home is where we can enjoy family and neighbors, but increasingly, it is also the place FROM which we connect.  Between email, texting and social media outlets, our laptops and cell phones are almost as busy @ home as they are @acce.org. 

Rather than stifling conversation across a coffee table, the messages we receive and send provide our family with MORE to talk about.  We comment on e-photos of new babies, messages from folks en route, FaceBook postings from former co-workers and, inevitably, office concerns.  Many people lament the modern world's loss of genuine family time, balance and peace.  I find more of all three BECAUSE I am linked thru modern COM.

It's going to be a great Christmas.  Yes, the 20-somethings will be texting instead of watching ancient home movies, but that's okay because the new dads we know will be posting pictures on FaceBook we want to see.  I actually LIKE to get holiday messages and posts from members in late December.  Also, the new recipe for stuffing we get from a website won't be as bland as Aunt Edna's and the video call we place on Christmas Eve through Skype to my Buffalo family will put us in their home and them in ours.

It's all good and it all makes us even more . . . "In This Together."  Merry Christmas
