While adjusting to new conditions of maintaining a safe and healthy physical distance, we are recalibrating our connections with others. In the age of DMs, chat, and SMS, Anthony Palumbi, a long-time gamer in the online community has shared useful advice about the power of the human voice and its role in relating virtually.
"Our voices have an immediacy, outbursts and all, that text can never match. Video calling is more accessible than ever before, and even those of us who have increasingly defaulted to text messaging should consider the value of the human voice, whether through tools like Skype or regular old-fashioned phone calls. And don’t just reach out to catch up: Ask for help when you need it, and offer help if you’re able to give it."
