Solid Words from a Little Softie.
I read that post today and IMMEDIATELY ran to my email to share it with my partner-- he's a psychiatrist, I thought, he should read this. And then I realized I wasn't sharing it at all for him or for his sake or even that he would necessarily find it incredibly interesting -- if he randomly shared posts on writing with me I'd be buried in 3 weeks. I realized I raced to share it because it touched ME, because I identified with it, because I wanted to prove to someone else that my feelings are real and legitimate and right here, on the page, real and live and true -- and that, I think, is the sign of a wonderful post.
Right with you, there, Nicki. Thanks for resharing.
