JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 224 :: staying connected

18 Aug
Tonight it rained in Chicago. Flash floods. Sheets of water pouring into the streets. The Windy City was drenched.

My cell phone lit up with a warning. Flash Flood Advisory. So did everyone else’s. I was in a restaurant and all the phones began beeping, lighting up and buzzing at the same time.  While the water cascaded through the streets we all took a moment to look at our phones and then outside. It was a pause. One that is sometimes hard to find in this fast paced world.

It was amazing really.

And a physical, in-my-hand, blinking from my cell phone reminder — we are all connected. We are all in this together.

Rain or shine.

More tomorrow.
