I find that I have so much to say, and so few people to talk to. I tell myself: there must be someone like me who is lost. There must be someone who is trapped in their mind, unable to face the world that is right in front of them. And then I remember the paradox: that they are everywhere, all around me, each person the center of their own observable universe. Through connection, we long to escape the prison of our minds; to create meaning where there otherwise is none. For at least, we are in this together.
