Yes, it does suck but it opens us so that others like us, polished and raw and afraid, can find us here and we can feel less like everyone who isn’t and special because we are…like us, I mean.
And I’d you weren’t raw, you wouldn’t be the unique and special and only you Jules! I read your work and had at your talent and wish I could even think like you write. That piece about your sister sits in my brain still. That was vulnerability, friend.
Yin and yang. Light and shadow. John and Paul. Gotta have both to be whole.
Especially raw and Shiny!
