Study for Ships That Pass in the Night
This piece is a statement on the vast gap in human communication in these days of extreme individualism and individual freedoms sought out at the expense of the greater good. Sabin bemoans the loss of true and meaningful human connection and mutual understanding. Humans are now shrouding and distancing from one another, all sides dancing around each other, searching for reconciliation but missing the mark completely.
“Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; so on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, only a look and a voice, then darkness again and silence.” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
