“Technology made it easy for us to stay in touch while keeping our distance;
’Til we just stayed distant and never touched. Now all we do is text too much.”
– Sage Francis, “The Best of Times”
I find myself saving images of campfires on Pinterest… I bookmark hiking trails on my smartphone… I go to a box store and pick out dead flowers under fluorescent lights and carry them home, like a house cat with its prize. “I should be outside” I think as I scroll mindlessly though Twitter. Real birds don’t tweet about hashtags. I daydream of the forest when I sit in my living room — so now, I’ve brought my living room to the forest.
