She Being Me

Question? Hmm?   The point of view of She: Writer, Thinker, Traveler, Worrier, and Dreamer.
She, Being Me.

The stranger on the train who transfixed me. I adore seeing people engrossed in books, so engrossed, that they chew on their fingernails and just seem happily lost. The world of a book…

cocoon

our cocoon of silence is
not a mutual punishment.
we breathe inside silence, you
and i, feeding off the unuttered
thoughts that dangle in the air,
pulling the invisible strings until
they rest on our beating hearts.
you know me, and i know you.
ours is not silence as withholding—
it is silence with holding.
silence with entwined hands.
silence with bowed heads,
in appreciation of our quiet communion.
words have been the crutch we never needed, white noise that belonged outside of us.
and so when you sigh, i sigh,
because—
for us—
it means i love you.

In memory of Maya Angelou, who died today at the age of 86, a look at a slide show of her life in photographs: http://nyr.kr/1pylkYU

I “met” Ms. Angelou when I opened the pages to I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I went on to read All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes in college, and countless of poems and thoughts and quotes in between. She was an inspiration then, and she remains an inspiration now.

The Wedding.

Like I said, I chose to be joyful.

On Saturday, two of my friends got married. It was a lovely wedding–sweet, simple, understated. I got to see good friends and family and dance these weak knees into lovely oblivion. And, if you’re wondering…

Overall, I was happy. Inside this mind and heart, however, was a different, rather interesting scene. See, the thing is…back in the day, years and years…
