“Individualism is a formidable lie.” Rene Girard
Not So Nuanced Am I alone on this vast road where others claim exclusive right, the lie that you can't know my way and I couldn't possibly know yours? Is our experience so nuanced? Am I alone on this vast road or do others feel what I feel when treading the painful places? It's true there's not one shade of blue, even grey has a varied hue, am I alone on this vast road, can any one feel as I do? Are we completely lost in self, rejecting all experience? Are we hermetically sealed? Am I alone on this vast road?
