Hi Jaden, my apologies for not getting in earlier. I admire and read you all the time. You are always teaching me something new. I am sad that you are hurting right now. I am grateful for the kindness and support you have shown me and will never forget it. The world is intolerably cruel and I know goodness of heart when I see it.
Some of the topics you delve in to I am absolutely not qualified to comment on. In those instances I do my very best to hard listen and dampen my internal conversations in order that I can approach an understanding of what the writer is trying to say. I use the word approach purposefully because from where I come from, where I started, I can ever only move toward an understanding of others’ stories. I will never entirely get there. I liken it to Zeno’s Paradox of the Tortoise and Achilles. But we run towards the light nonetheless.
