Her ~ The Heart’s Infinite Ability to Be and Receive Love

Today, at Starbucks, I was sitting at a table with my laptop, taking a break between work to observe people, and noticed three people awaiting the readiness of their chosen caffeine drinks, all of them looking down at their cellphone screens, fingers on the keys, engrossed in their technological connection.
