Jean Wise, in her blog, writes about how skimming info on the internet is affecting her skimming life at a more shallow level:
Are you fully engaged? Do you actually live life, or just skim it?Multitasking. Busyness. Noise. All modern hassles that I often simply accept, don’t fight, and let rule my life. Part of my survival mechanism, I guess.But lately I have noticing my reading, listening and even prayer is lacking depth – I am skimming in all areas of my life.Skimming makes me look like I have it all together and am on top of things, yet something is missing. I am not taking the time to develop deep roots – roots that will nourish me through dry periods and hold me steady during the storms of life.
How might the internet be affecting your depth of life/living/relationships?
