invisible 1


A day comes, if you’re lucky and it’s true, when you see that

You never really know what’s going on

Though others seem to have it by osmosis.

No worries…

Though the dawning knowledge that you don’t…quite…fit…ANYwhere

Is a gift of liberation not accompanied by explanatory text –

It rather defies description.

Quickly you see the grace you’ve been given for navigating

Tricky waters and tests of loyalty – 

  When you’re mostly invisible you get to slide.

That’s when the gift becomes the knowledge that you belong

Only to yourself

And you need to know only your Truths.

You can forget the rest, and *fitting* is vastly overrated.

Or so I hear.

      We’re doing great, thanks, my sweet friend. Today he gets the heavy cast off, stitches out, and a lighter-weight cast. We’re both anxious to see where the incision is and how it’s looking. He’s been a model patient – but he’s sooooo tired of sleeping in his recliner! Hope the new cast will make the bed an option again. And hope the four of us can get together SOON!!

    This might be my favorite thing you have written. I’m that girl… the one who doesn’t fit in . It’s been my lifelong challenge. And now…. it’s quite possibly the thing about me I love the most. ❤️

      I feel the same – it’s my own quiet gift. And thank you for the sweet gift of letting me know this meant something special to you – that’s better sustenance than food. ❤️



Talk to me, I'm soooo lonely ...
