Summary:

Essence
We are all immortal.
To be more specific, we are all legends.
Our thoughts, our words, our actions, our love, anger, rage, bitterness, hope, diligence, courage and bravery have made us into an ethereal mass of something hauntingly beautiful.
To call all these things a spirit would be too concrete; in fact, it would be inaccurate, implying that it is separate from a vessel which many claim to be our true selves.
That is a cliche, is it not?

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I read up to Chapter 8, and really enjoyed it! Really great poetry, all of it tying together with the idea of souls without bodies - it's deep and terrifying, but also really brave, to think let alone write about. Awesome stuff! :)
