I just read this and then looked you up...my god, so amazing and poignant. What a voice. This is the real reality of people...a piece like that. "Once I asked my therapist if you are what they remember of you or what you imagine of yourself. My therapist shook his head and said he couldn’t understand a word I said." I understood it. That's why I love it.
Thank you for your thoughtful comment, apple-dark! Truly appreciated. :)
