MODERN LIFE CONUNDRUM

MODERN LIFE CONUNDRUM

(a semi-romantic view)

Commute by the light of the moon,

But don’t expect sleep til noon…

One cannot steer

One’s own life here,

So must carve out down time soon!

–Jonathan Caswell

LOOKING OUTSIDE

LOOKING OUTSIDE

 

Sitting near a window,

Watching falling snow…

Currier and Ives*

For modern lives,

As memories through our thoughts gently flow.

 

–Jonathan Caswell

* Currier and Ives…a popular 19th Century lithograph company that made and printed images of Americana that remain popular today.   These images were often stylized, perhaps popular because they were how people wanted to remember the America they lived in.
