Now we drive, hermetically sealed in sleek,
air-conditioned cars,
engines silent as stealth,
traveling through the world like something preserved
in glass jars,
shutting out the sounds and smells of summer –
the drone of cicadas and lawnmowers,
the musk of new-mown grass.

We have smart phones and dumb people.. 

Be there in the moment when she gives you the look that she gave in the moment when love overtook… 

Look up from your phone, shut down your display, stop watching this video, and live life the real way…
