100 words- June 9

There is a difference between a Me conceit and an I concept, as they relate to communication. I will agree that it is very subtle. It may be, in fact, too subtle a difference for my wits to illustrate clearly, but I will try. Perhaps I may, if you will, create an analogy.

I see the Me conceit as a black hole, sucking up everything unto itself, whereas the the I is an explosion outward, from the center, forming cosmoses of ideas. The Me sees only self, the I looks outward. The I becomes, in a sense, a roving eye.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
