Compensate Modern Radio



The words for this week are:

Compensate
Modern
Radio


The song on the radio brings back memories
Of good days past and cheerful laughs
How sad it is that we tend to forget
Work is chosen over families and friends

Modern technology allows connection
Through electronic mails and video calls
And yet these are not enough to compensate
The feel of a warm hug and the sound of your voice

Wow, your blog didn't like me much this morning! Took a couple of tries to get here :)

You take what you can get sometimes? It's not a substitute, no, but it's still better than nothing.

Radio does make us nostalgic. I still have that valve radio which belonged to my dad!

or the thrill of a snail mail!..thank you, loved the sentiment.

No modern technology doesn't compensate for the real thing--but does let us move far from our loved ones---and stay constantly in touch

Beautiful, but sad. I always enjoyed listening to the radio growing up and spending time with everyone I knew. But, somewhere along the line that connection was lost. So, I can relate to this poem very well. I have been working on reconnecting though. Keep up the good work.

Have a nice day.

Princesses Can Be Bullies Too

People think of bullies as someone who are bigger, older. Someone who can physically hurt another and uses that power to bully someone else...
