I just called ...

“Hello darling,
look, I know you’re busy
with breakfast, coffee
the morning paper, but
just a quick question…
could you tell me please
why our distance seems to grow?
have we lost our touch?
what is happening here?
you are close enough to hold
yet so very distant, still

It seems we simply don’t
really converse anymore
I miss you dearly, need to hear
your comforting, friendly voice
no, you don’t have to
look me in the eye
I just called
to hear the words
just say the words I want
to hear and I will reply:
I do too… goodbye…"

Artist's Description

FEATURED IN:

Pink Panther Magazine – 8 Sept 2010

Recently Michel (Farfarm ) put me to the challenge of adding words to some of his images.

Michel has a very distinctive photographic style and his brilliant capture of interesting, thought-provoking and sometimes, slightly “off-beat” street scenes certainly feeds the imagination. Each image tells a unique tale for us to ponder and interpret as we see or feel it.

I was quite inspired by this one, which really hit home. This is my take on a capture depicting a “sign-of-our-times” craziness that seems to steadily infiltrate our everyday, busy lives…

I say: let’s make more quality time for those we love!
