The other night I was chatting with a friend of mine who lives in Ottawa. I’ve yet to meet her in person; this connection has been initiated all through social media networks like Twitter & Facebook. I will say, I appreciated this conversation & her character.
Particularly noteworthy about this dialogue were some insightful words she had to say in relation to a discussion we were having about a feeling I sometimes get in life. Essentially I reflected on something I’ve recognized within myself as I get older; as someone who is & always has been solitary by nature. The irony being that struggle to embrace that which makes us ‘different’ & unique vs. the instinct at times to go within & protect it from the worlds effect.
She shared a beautiful quote. Here it is, in scrap-book doodle form.
