Shadows

More than the dark, shadows make me uneasy. Always have. My shadow is my doppelganglier, my attempt to both escape and yet remain connected to myself.

Science aside, there's something disturbing about that.

I read once that those with autism are overly distracted with their shadows. Maybe it's the comfort of things in black and white? A comfort I'm not that familiar with, for I more-than-tend to see the grays.

Really love everything about this. I didn't know that about people with autism.

I'm the other way. I'm fascinated by my shadow. I like the distorted version of my self. It reminds me that no two people see anything exactly the same way. Perspective is everything.

Guess we best make Peace with ourselves...and that pesky shadow.

I'll be honest, I haven't noticed my shadow in a while. After I read this I had to check to make sure he was still there.

Yup. Still there.
