Insightful, thoughtful, there’s not a word out of place. I shared it with a couple of friends immediately.
You’ve shed modern constructs and found another level to relate to people from, a place from the heart, ‘authentic’ as they say! It is painful to excise lies from your DNA, but it’s worth every effort. I recognise it because I’m doing it too. I think a lot of people are right now as everything we ever knew crumbles around us and we try to make sense of the chaos. You have articulated it very well. Great piece. Thank you for writing it. :)
