In America there is growing concern about the dramatic increase in the use of text messaging to communicate with others. Admittedly, in many cases there would be no communication at all if it were not for text messaging. But the reality is we miss a great deal if that’s all we do. To provide specific information about the whereabouts or activities is probably okay, but Charles Osgood, the CBS word merchant, expressed it quite well when he said, “Compared to the spoken word a picture is a pitiful thing indeed.” It’s one thing to tell someone you love him or her in a text message; it’s quite another thing to give that person a call and say, “Just thinking about you…wanted you to know that I admire you a great deal and I love you very much.”
