Communication occurs on so many different levels. If you are sensitive enough you can pick up the nuance of any communication, way beyond whatever was actually said.

And still you will be far from the very heart of it.

That is the ultimate frustration for me: that I will never truly express what I think and how I feel, and I will never understand you, completely. Words distort: the true essence and nature of what you and I mean will be lost through the filter of language to at least some degree.


Some of the most wonderful experiences I have had communicating with people have been in the absence of words. I’m sure you can figure it out!


Clear, straight, honest communication. Or no communication. It really is as simple as that.
