Opia – The ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable

January 5, 2017

I felt her moving behind me. My breath caught and held as I waited for a count of 1, 2..3..

“Where is she looking?”
“At me, but I think at my bottom lip, definitely not in my eyes.”

A whistle, the sound and then seconds later, fire.
I bit down hard on the scream before it pushed through my lips.
I looked him in the eyes.

“Now she’s looking. Her vulnerability is breathtaking.”

Her whisper in my ear, as soft as the earlier pain was still sharp.
“Good girl.”

I sighed as she kissed my neck.
I was hers.

Sonder – The realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own.

January 5, 2017
“I am me.
I create, process, analyze, contribute, engage.
I inhabit my body though I sometimes forget it’s not a separate entity.
I dance freely when I’m unafraid.
I experience the pounding of my own heart – exhilaration, fear, expansion.
I stay still and yet move almost effortlessly through time.
I depend on memory to catalogue places, people, events both grandiose and mundane.
I see, I smell, I hear, I taste, I feel.
I wonder about people and things outside of myself, discover compassion, empathy.
I incorporate lessons to help me grow, evolve, understand.”
 
“So do I.”
 
“Oh yeah, that’s right.”
