Familiar Stranger

I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me.

Brilliant. And so very, very important. I came to this realization myself, some time ago. Still, it's very nice to have others to share with...

Yes and that person is truly empowered as well!

Lovely quote.
