Uncensored Self


May 31, 2013 by Angel Pricer

A funny thing occurred after I commented on a blog post this morning. Mind you, I’m more of an on-line lurker than conversationalist. Not because I don’t want to engage, but because I find myself failing to construct the perfect response.

Maybe it’s the recent nudge to submit my work; or perhaps it’s the buoying support I’ve received since taking that great leap that led me to post a simple comment without the usual angst over the best way to turn a phrase. Whatever the reason, I put my words together, hit the reply button, and started making my coffee.

That’s when the magic happened. I began to have ideas of how to tighten up my thoughts, add simple, yet vivid descriptors and didn’t kick myself for not having thought of them BEFORE I posted my reply. Instead, I joyfully acknowledged that hard working revisionist hanging out behind my eyes and thanked her for helping me to realize that we work much better as a team than when we’re fighting a battle where words are never born.

    Every now and then I get to a point where I just feel almost broken and it seems like Angel is the only one I can go to and know that it will just between us…she is just so centered and just has the…can’t explain it, but it always makes me feel better to talk to her in times of emotional ruckus.

      Thank you for demonstrating such vulnerability here Jim. There is much strength to be found when we come face to face with our broken pieces. Your willingness to look, ask and listen is the mark of one who is committed to staying the course no matter what. It brings me great joy to have some small part in your play of life 🙂
