My daughter Valerie and I were talking recently about such things, and she asked when did life get so crazy, so fast-paced, she doesn't remember it being like this when she was younger. And how with technology we don't really save time, it just adds stress, and we're still behind or have more to absorb than we can keep up with. I guess that's what the poem sums up. There's an inherent loneliness in here that saddens me, and makes me wonder about "annoying", I guess it's all in our free will of selection, prioritizing and choice-making, dealing with TMI (too much information). Weeding out the merit of the ones closest to us, the messages they give, and really following and filing them in our hearts or minds. Very valuable and well done piece, Chris.
