Two parallel worlds
Spin out of control

Me too. How often we fail to listen to another person; usually because we are lost in the maze of our own assumptions and projections. 😦
An intangible dilemma.

Occasionally we seem to overcome the obstacles. Magic moments. Frequently verbal language is not involved.
“Keep passing the open windows.” – John Irving from “…Garp” From this point let life be free in a transforming fashion.
I try to keep mine open, although sometimes all that comes by is the cold.
Not “…Garp.” The quote is from “Hotel New Hampshire.”
I haven’t seen that film for years.
Love them both and the books are fabulous.
I shall reinvestigate both films. Speaking of films: do you know/like “Matchstick Men”?
Happens all too often – until we learn to really listen. And even then….
I’ve been contemplating communication – and lack of it – quite a lot recently.
Me too…. and feel guilty for my own lack of it. It’s about quality of reciprocation, not superficial quantity.
Right here on WP, there are so many wonderful poets, and I lack the energy to keep up. Would that this could be a full time “career” – the reading and the interchanges. Thank YOU Ben, for your kindness and patience with those of us who are remiss.
For me I think the problem is about available time rather than energy. And I 100% agree with you about quality trumping quantity.
… as they will.
Yet we endure and persevere.
Two parallel worlds… NEVER meet or join together!
I seem to remember a mathematics teacher telling us they meet at infinity. Sounds a bit mystical to me. 🙂
