"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")

People carve this romantic fantasy of you that just does not correspond with reality...you feel dirty, like there is something wrong with you.


But it is not you - it is social prejudice, it is fear of the unknown, it is a desire to fill in the silence.


The silence is the bloom that sustains you, fiery as the power beneath a hot air balloon - it is lucid, it is pleasant; it is as natural as the flowers that blossom a beautiful crimson outside.


It is who I am.

This is a piece addressing the shocking discrimination still directed towards introverts in a gregrarious-driven world that resents our presence.
