The very act of speech is courageous because no matter what we say, we are revealed.
We speak here. It is not as the same as speaking in front of a live audience perhaps, but I think here, too, we reveal to ourselves and others. How are we impacted? Do we view posting here as courageous?
How closely do we want to look into ourselves?
I say we and yet I suppose it is I who am interested in these questions. How am I changed by you? How are you changed by me?
As I reflect on this, I realize I am opened by you, exposed. I learn and digest. I am changed. Thank you!
