Even if they’ve been married for fifty years.”
We are born islands.
We are unknown and unexplored islands.
We live in relationships that manage to penetrate only a little beyond our surface.
We think we love, but understanding who the other is, what makes her/him feel good or what hurts her/him is a really difficult goal.
And we, too, are unknown to ourselves.
The knowledge and exploration of oneself requires a lot of time and many questions and accompanies us throughout our whole life.
Life is but a path of personal growth, an evolution of one’s soul and mind.
If we never take this path, we will never be able to understand who we are and we may never know another person and really love.
Love would be just a subtle induced illusion.
The impression of loving and being loved.
“There is a basin in the mind where words float around on thought and thought on sound and sight.
Then there is a depth of thought untouched by words, and deeper still a gulf of formless feelings untouched by thought.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

“I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable;
more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person.”
