How I Wish
How I Were You Were Here
We're Just Two Lost Souls Living in a Fish Bowl
Year After Year
Runnin' 'Round on the Same Old Ground
Or Have We Found The Same Old Fears
Wish You Were Here...
-- Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here" (1975)
At times I wonder whether wireless communications and social media have not made longing obsolete, and that the sentiment is now reversed -- that we now more than ever wish those with whom we interact to Not Be Here, at least the here where we are now.
