From there to here.

There's a strange comfort in opening up to a stranger sometimes.

You don't take each other quite so seriously. You're pretty certain that what's shared now will be forgotten later.
You giggle, you flirt, you laugh, you talk about changing the world, and in those moments neither realises the weight of our giddy-headed words.

And then before you know it, you're exchanging thoughts, forming links, discovering mutual likes and dislikes.
A thought tip-toes around and finally unfurls - words have to be chosen more carefully now.


So the question is, do you yearn for those days when you could throw caution to the wind and bare your soul (or at least some of it) to a stranger?

My answer to that would be a slighty-nostlagic, but a very-sure "No".

Because now, we discover that rather than weight there's depth to every word spoken.

And I'd rather have that any day.

What's keeping you from keeping that 'stranger' attitude and taking it to everyone you speak to? Could lead to interesting revelations :D

Oh my god, this totally echoes something I was thinking of just last night. Actually I do miss those days...or perhaps I just miss that feeling of un-self-consciousness.

Nice post, Mahi. How you doing?

renovatio - it sure could! but honestly sometimes it takes too much of an effort yknow what i mean? and plus, i think this sorta scenario is rare coz it involves an equal amount of effort from both sides, and that doesn't happen too often!

anon - *takes a bow*

dewdrop - funny mahi's away at the moment, leave a message and she'll back to you as soon as possible :D

smithy - doing good babe :) i think you've got it right, feeling un-self conscious is really uplifting when you're in the company of the right crowd!
