Inside Out

“Everyone just cares about how they feel”. “No one knows how I feel”.

It’s difficult to know what someone else is feeling, even when you are close.

Because we each live in our own worlds there is always a feeling of separateness around us.

He climbs into bed next to me and his body feels cold from the night. His arms encase me like a vice and he pulls me close. He slips into sleep and his world of thought releases its grip on him. His body goes limp and he’s a child again. Safe, protected, loved and innocent.

What if the whole world fell asleep all at once, and while we were sleeping, all of our ‘grown-up’ thinking was stripped away. When we awoke there was only childhood innocence and a longing to feel connected, instead of disconnected.

How happy we all would be.
