True

Though I use the tools of technology, daily, I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed with how they seem to warp our sense of time and space.

Things move rapidly, as the tangible turns virtual.

Gazing upon these pictures from the past, I feel both soothed and saddened. They conjure awareness of an inherent longing within. My yearning for nature, true connection, and the feel of earth under my feet.

(Thanks to iiThinks for introducing me to www.old-picture.com, which highlights these treasured photos).
