Thinking about how I become realized in the world brings me to Simon’s monuments as static objects. I’m not a representation of myself, I am myself. Wanting to be real but not confined to remaining in place or figured out like a dime-store puzzle.

Oddly, my mission for years has been to be noticed for the damage done me. How it changed me and how hard it was and now I’m quitting narrative for the luxury of being “there”, uncertain AND alive. What can be undone anyway? I can’t / won’t go back and really this has all been learning of great benefit and my growth from it matters most. The ability to “know” others is almost as silly as “knowing” ourselves to some finite point. We’ll all be as real as we can. Vulnerable? Maybe with lowered barriers first.

Fool, I jump, who will catch me?
