This post was inspired by my fellow survivor and friend, Splinterdones. Who wrote “Ten Clarifying Words” back in March and I have read it numerous times a day since. It has helped me immensely to get through the rough patches and also reflect on all the support I do have.
So, this is my version of “Ten Clarifying Words” which is different from Splinterdones. However, it is similar I think. Both posts may possibly give a succinct snapshot of the journey at various points. I am attempting to make my sentences only ten words long but at the same time, I do not want to attach constraints :)

I will hug you with my eyes.
Do I know you? No, the real question is do you want to.
