Wandering the wire

Searching endlessly searching

For that which was never there

Very deep, Martin. Too often that's the case: we reach for that which is not within reach.

I speak for myself here, but I wonder ------

How difference my life might be if I gave my words of endearment to

a person rather than a work of art?
