    Structure to Absurdity

    I wonder what human connection really is.  It is hard for me to describe this into a way that can be consumed by the masses and understood.  You have connections that are a result of providing what someone desperately needs.  You see a hungry person and you give...

    If At All

    My feelings run very deep and intermingle in a confusing way. I am empathic and so I have other people's feelings bombarding me at the same time, making things more muddled and confusing. I generally know what I am feeling, but I cannot often describe it accurately. Sometimes it...

    There are times when I can't put my feelings into words. Funny enough I will feel or see a color. The last time my leg was hurting... I couldn't describe the pain AT ALL. I just looked at my cousin/messeuse (sorry spelling) and told her I feel magenta! It hurts really badly and...

    Not For Lack Of Trying.

    I think and feel things that I cannot put into words. Despite my thorough knowledge of language... I am at a loss for words. These things I experience I cannot rationally explain to myself; not even to mention another. So that does nothing to help the situation.I have come to...
