A few thoughts and ponderings from the Simpler PR team that we just couldn’t keep to ourselves…

Living for the moment…..

The other day I was with my little girl and her friend, they looked so cute as they walked ahead of me swinging their shoppping bags that I had to capture the moment on camera… so out comes the iphone and click… done. Of course we all do this, all the time. However, it got me thinking – why not just enjoy the moment for what it is? Don’t worry about making a digital record, just store the image in your mind.
