to meet someone new and old in person
to have the time to really get to know them
when did connection become about a literal spark?
(though I don’t think we’ve met yet)
and that good ol’ fashioned lightning.
is someone who’s lived a vastly different reality than you
whether internally or externally.
find the differences among you
to shatter what you thought you knew about “the” world,
find the similarities between you
to start to piece it together again.
you’ll find it it takes on a new shape and more space
the power of a warm drink and an unlikely friend
