The Others

When my own darkness descends, when I can no longer make sense of my place in the world, I find comfort in the shadows of others. In the words that speak of love and loss and passion and pain. In the words that light up the screen and ink the page. In the words that tear me apart and put me back together.

Words are how we communicate thoughts and feelings when we can't touch and see each other. That communication with others, even far away or not really known, allows us to feel part of the bigger life of the world.
And we are, all together, part of something.
Rock on!

I couldn't agree with you more, Rex.

The words of others allow me to feel connected in an often very palpable way, so much so they become the bodies I reach out and touch...

Funny...same effect that your words have!

Oh, thank you, Os! You have placed a big smile on my face with the thought that my words play such a part in the lives of others...

My soul cries out. Words now leap to the page. The screen. Almost unbidden.

I find things within that I didn't know where there. Deep within my own Abyss. So far within I've been afraid to look.

But now I've taken a peak. I'm Scared. Frightened. Invigorated. Excited. Shamed. Enamored. But it is better to face the real person within, rather than the facade.

I continue to marvel at you and your words. I am
Spellbound by the Enchantrix.

Thank you.

Thank you, Muffin, thank you.

For me, if the words of others allow us to look into ourselves, see ourselves for who we really are, the light and shade and the grey in between, I think this joins us all together. And ultimately sets us free...
