Adam and the Evening

Your speech disrupts my quiet introspection.

You never stop and stare at the beauty in trash.

In fact,

You wonder what I am doing, staring at piles of garbage

left on lawns.

    1. Thank you for the kind words! Looking back, it illustrates the sometimes stark differences I notice between extroverts and introverts, poets versus artists versus realists.

      1. Exactly. I think too often we fail to notice these small differences and understand that a lot of discord actually comes from this. But there is something to be said about learning to see the world through another’s eyes.

      2. I think as writers, most of us are fascinated with seeing the world through others eyes, thats why we create characters. I have learned not to be to surprised that others may not operate the same way I do.

      3. Exactly. I’ve even used the creation of characters previously to analyse situations, just so that I could take a step back and try and see what’s really going on. I’ve been starkly aware from a young age that other’s didn’t think like me but it’s only recently I’ve really come to accept it.

      4. I am glad you have come to accept it. I know I waffle back and forth– mostly accepting (maybe 75-85% of the time) but sometimes very resistant to the idea that everyone doesn’t see things exactly the way I do. So I create characters to act the way I want them to, but even they rarely cooperate 😉

      5. I think characters we create are probably the most uncooperative entities. I’ve had many a time when I’m writing and I can’t seem to get the character to do what I want. I’ve even bored my friends with the sentiment and they seem to look at me as though I’m insane. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who struggles to keep them in line. 😛
