Vintage Connections

View through rose tints
a time of vintage splendour,
the long haul to connect,
disregarding
the dirt,
the grime,
the hardship,
the narrow views of reality
permeating society.
A time before
superfast,
before the immediate,
ephemeral
brushing of personalities.
A time before
the tap of a finger
could unlock wonders
unimaginable
to scholars of yesteryear.
A time when to connect required
a touch,
a smile,
a word,
a missive penned
in language
elegant or prosaic,
or a journey lasting days.
A time before
technological progression
reduced the distance
between.


I spent quite a while trying to decide which angle to take with today’s theme: connection to people, connection to history, connections through transport, connections through the internet. In the end I think I covered all of them…

Bye-de-byes.
