    You said a lot in just a few lines here, Sue. I’d love to hear a poetry group or class discussing what they “see” in it. (And it’d be fun if you could sit behind a two-way mirror and hear all of those responses!)

    One thought it evoked in me is that we really never know another person fully. In some ways, no matter how we may meditate, no matter how much work we do with self awareness, I don’t know that we can ever even fully know ourselves. So much of our perception of the world, others and self is necessarily through a broken lens of experience, expectation and a host of other “blur-inducers.”

      It would be an interesting experience “to see oursels as ithers see us” as Burns put it. I agree that we can never be entirely sure that what we think we know of ourselves is true. Maybe it is the trying that matters.
