Stay

I am struck today by the full force of the realisation of how important communication really is. How vital it is to reach out to another human being across the ether, to open one's mind unto another's, to share a memory, a feeling, and to receive, in return, an equally heartfelt emotion, an equally poignant memory.

It is so easy to feel lost and lonely in the world. Sometimes, the urge to reach out and touch someone becomes almost irresistible. The comfort to be derived from contact is great.

I cannot have imagined a greater gift than that of language, be it one of words or gestures or smiles or caresses.

The incredible power of sharing an experience will never be underestimated by me again.

Reassurance, when given, if sought, is like an unshakable and adamant support. And tonight, for that much I am grateful.

I wonder of the different chains of thoughts and actions that lead to such deliberating thoughts.

Language is indeed wonderful.

Joy always,
Susan

very true :) it's wonderful to be able to express, and have someone receive, understand or partake of the expression.

This summed it all up, not only the post but also a fact that makes life so livable even after the worst break downs! :)

True , because life is about sharing . The idea of a very beautiful and scenic world without any fellow occupants is so scary....
