SORRY. I intended to save this, not to post it. It was to be a draft I might have posted later today. But by hitting the wrong button, I ruined it. Please ignore.
The words of experience and pain and compassion that spill from the lips and fingers of people with whom I have even a tenuous connection can take my breath away. An experience yesterday triggered this reminder and recognition that unbridled honesty, while perhaps brutal, can be stunning in its raw beauty.
