Thank you for your lovely compliments. :) I’m so flattered that anything I’ve had to say might have positively affected someone else. I’d considered myself primarily a poet, so the idea of emotionally affecting with words isn’t new to me, but this is. It’s still kind of stunning me. :)
I think of people kind of like electrical wiring. You don’t get a proper connection if the shielding is in the way, so you scrape at it until the shielding is gone and the two pieces can touch each other, bare metal. That’s how honestly is, with me. Striped down, touching essence.
