Missing Me. Missing You

You thought
what you saw
was all
Was that arrogance
short-sightedness or
lack of curiosity?
Wondering
what else you've missed?

Missing me, Missing you.
We need to look more closely to see.

Those few lines made me turn inwards. I peaked inside and felt queasy. I came outside again. I am ok. Are you ok?

*hug*

hi Jessica!
I'm fine. Thank you. I'm smiling, in fact, to see you here!

Another wonderful combo of word and photo. I miss so much in others, and I also miss much in myself. I can get stuck in one single view, and then something happens --- do I think that's all there is? or maybe I get bored? or maybe I just don't know how to move deeper.
Anyway, your post reminds me that there's always more than meets the eye, and when it comes to people, there's always more to see.

Hi Dawn,
There is always more -- more than this, more than we could hope for, more than we need. I seldom take time to seek it out, except when I write or listen to music. Then I get a small glimpse.
