Powerful concept, Avery!
Yeah - i too need to connect and build a bridge to the man i could have been - or am meant to be - maybe as much or more than the lost child.
As it is, I am just existing in a grey limbo that is neither a state of innocence nor maturity - but a half-completed person - not even fully a MAN.
This makes sense to me in a very deep way. I want to know more. But don't know how to do it. Hope others will weigh in on this one, too.
