I tell my ignorance what it longs to hear

             You are beautiful, I love you

And in its face I see a thousand mirrors

As they say, somtimes "ignorance is bliss"...

William, I am always in awe of how much you can say in so few words. You are truly a talented writer my friend.

Jan, I can’t thank you enough, especially for your last two words.

Fits perfectly with reading the Apology!

William Michaelian said...

Does it? Thanks to you I’ll be reading that soon. I have it here in one of my trusty Harvard Classics.

And a thousand thoughts in these few beautiful words.....

Hi William!
Good to see you again.

The mirrors....they are made to reflect a part of us, maybe you´re reflecting your own love and beauty.

Hope you´re ok.
Kisses!

And a joy for me when you enter it, Momo Luna.... thank you.

Crissant, how nice to hear from you. I’m okay. I hope you are too. If not, well, we’ll just change these silly mirrors....

That was cool, William. Thanks for letting us habs reads.

No, I am not sure what a Hab is. A little like a hemulen, I suspect.

Well, Peter, I don’t know. According to this Wikipedia article,

Hemulens tend to have obsessive personalities, devoting themselves solidly to one interest, whether it be skiing, stamp-collecting, butterflies, or whatever. They tend also to be oblivious to the feelings and opinions of others. Other characters frequently find the Hemulens annoying or overwhelming, as they can be somewhat loud, bossy, abrasive and insensitive. However, they are well intentioned and usually have other redeeming qualities. Hemulens resemble Moomintrolls, but are taller, always grey, and have an even longer nose than moomintrolls. They all wear dresses, and Moomins cannot understand their reason for wearing so many clothes.

Fascinating.
