I was on the train this am reading an article about an art show in Brooklyn, “Burying the lede”. It was about artists and their attachments for ink on paper. How we Glow over the words on the pages and the ink that smears on our fingers. It is simply beautiful. I could not imagine starting my day without ink on my fingers and beautiful prose popping off the pages spread before me.
No sooner had I finished this article when I glanced over to the adjacent track and observed an Acela train passing us. At least 90% of the people were tapped into some sort of electrical device. That stunned me. We have become this digital world who somehow managed to become cut off from one another.
