Easing my way back into writing with mindfulness, introspection, and writing challenges.
smiles...and if you're not together right, you're a piece of artwork...just imagine how picasso in his cubism pics defragments people and puts them together in a whole different way...makes them all the more special... and you are special and good as you are..smiles
its interesting trying to put a puzzle together without a picture...its def a puzzle trying to put ourselves together too...and even wondering if we will ever get it all right...who knows...maybe as right as we will ever be...smiles.
Yes, I imagine everyone has to figure themselves out in life. Just not quite as literally as people like me have to. Am glad to be here.
as to your question on CAP words...its something i started a couple years ago to emphasize the emotion behind a word....sometimes i do it to hide a word in a poem or a central phrase...so it has various uses...
Thanks for responding, Brian. That's creativity beyond my own but is very interesting to read that way!
Very clever. But then again the mirror keeps a lot of secrets, so the question is can one trust the mirror?
Depends on the perspective of the one viewing him/herself. For many, difficult to see oneself without criticism so how accurate is it for anyone? Glad this evoked some deep thoughts :)
ah, there should always be a little Picasso in our lives... ;) beautifully penned.~Miriam
Hadn't thought of myself as a Picasso pieced together but it's kinda like that :)
Looking in the mirror, I sometimes asked myself the same thing too ~ It's a journey we all take and hopefully we can figure it out someday ~ Enjoyed your perspective ~
Thank you, Grace. There's a book called Stranger in the Mirror that addresses a number of ways people don't see themselves authentically in the mirror.
I love the last line. I imagine that many people ask themselves this question. Maybe if we knew what we meant by right? Thus is a nice take on the prompt.
I used the word "right", but "good enough" is likely more accurate. Thank you, Heidi!
Understand about the mirror - sometimes I am not certain the reflection is me...Anna :o]
I totally understand. The responses here make me wonder a much broader spectrum of why that happens.
I know the feelings well. You've done an exquisite job of putting that together.>KB
Thank you so much!
...every part of us is an art & has beauty hiding beyond what our eyes can reach... some parts may not be good in the eyes of the world & it's normal for eyes are made to see beauty...at the end of the day it's the heart that justifies & defines what real beauty is... smiles...
Thank you so much for reading and sharing your lovely perspective!
Of course one is right and whole. The little puzzles that appeared in between were the 'goodies' that made life more interesting! Nicely Maggie!Hank
Love the final, honest question. Me, I later asked if it mattered. It doesn't.
This is such an honest picture you paint.. those pieces without instruction, but at least an image exist after a while... lovely piece.
ha...i love the question, so honest and so relatable. I really enjoyed your take Maggie, very cool.
Oh, what an apt metaphor. We really don't get much of an instruction book, and just do our best to heal ourselves, as you say.
Beautifully written. I often wonder if my challenges and victories make me into what I had hopes to me
If this were a contest...here lies the winner.
Wow, thank you, Gail!
Everyone's life is a mystery. You are like an individual work of art, a thing of beauty. Thanks
