An Honest Man
7/19/2003 4:47:34 AM
We live in a world that has perfected the technological art of communication - and almost totally lost the art of interaction. We no longer talk from the heart but rather off-the-shelf. Our conversations have become as sparkling, bubbly, and effervescent as a can of softdrink - and about as nutritious. And our advice comes pre-bottled, pre-packaged, and freeze dried. The advice sounds good, looks good, tastes alright - but does nobody any good.
What do we really say to someone when we offer them up a serve of pre-packaged, cliche'd advice? - and we do it so often without even realising it. What if one day they met - an honest man? Perhaps he might say something like what is in my newly posted poem "An Honest Man".
I've also been playing with my photo collection again and put up an image on my "No Whales In the Creek" Article.
Been a little busy lately but hope to get around to checking out a few more pieces around AD as time permits. See you around.
Post a Comment new!
