Comments THOUGHTS OF THE MOMENT
Peeling away layers & finding lost pieces
It wasn’t easy writing blood isn’t inviolable because it weighs heavily but also because I’m normally a private person. Yet I want to keep opening up and peel away these layers I hide behind. As a good friend of mine reminded me,
“…the unexamined life is not worth living.”
Of course some might think I’m being too open or that it’s none of anyone’s business. Maybe so but I write here for myself and none other.
That’s the way it should be, especially growing up all these years as a deaf person trying to conform to the ideals of hearing society and losing my own identity in the process.
This space is a way of reclaiming that identity halfway through my life. The journey towards openness isn’t without without occasional trepidations yet is refreshingly authentic and quite healing.
It feels like I’m recovering lost pieces of me back into who I am (hullo, Mr. red-Potato-head!).
