A father finds a dusty photograph
From a shoebox owned by his father, now long passed
His twelve year old daughter already has little time too
“Have you got a minute Emma?”
Fragile, faded photographs
Rarely printed, forgotten
Lost in oceans, space and time
“This one looks interesting, sit down if you can…”
“This is how they lived off the land
See how nature was cut, polluted, wasted
They had no idea of harmony, connection
A dark time….primitive.”
“Daddy I see something else
I see light…
I see hope…”
His head turns
Between a smile and a tear
Another hour passes.
