“To All My Facebook Friends” (2)

Words can be perfect to describe everything in the world, even if they are ironical truths.
Such a great piece of poetry.

Before I Became a Great Writer

Aternatively,
We could unplug ourselves
Off Facebook
And start writing
In journals.
Alternatively,
We could write
Each other letters
And make frequent trips
To the post office.
It will take too much of our time,
Of course, but our correspondence
Will be longer
And the pleasure of conversing

Anyway, a conversation
Via social media

And profile photos
Isn’t really much of a
Conversation, is it?

My site is very new, and i dont even know how it all operates on WP yet, but the impetus to go outside, away from the pc, and discover something worth photographing is already strong. Thats a big plus for sure. Ive had quite a few low points myself over the years, but i always feel better after an exterior adventure 🙂
