Social media, for many, is anything but social. Sometimes when I’m out in a public place I stop and look to see how many people are walking or sitting while totally engrossed in their phone, oblivious to what’s happening around them.
I was recently invited to join a group of women who have been meeting for the past 44 years.
I quickly noticed there wasn’t a mobile phone in sight. No one was updating their status. Everyone was talking.
The Ipswich & West Moreton Discussion Group was formed by Jill Steele to encourage connections and conversations among women in the region.
The group is still going strong all these years later.
