How true this is today, we do not even take time to visit any more and if we do they are busy watching TV. It is difficult to have an old fashion conversation around the TV being on, besides I can stay home and watch my own TV. I like to "talk" to people, maybe have a cup of tea or coffee together, smile and laugh with each other, sad but a thing of the past.
I know what you mean. Good conversation is a treasure.
