An interesting response. Worth some discussion...

Morning constitutionals completed (no quail this morning but there was a roadrunner zipping up the trail- thank you Universe), I did a quick pass through last evenings posts and came across a very interesting response to anothers blog post.

If you haven't already, I encourage you to go read GoddessOfTheDawn's GoddessOfTheDawn latest offering. As always, a moving and emotionally cleansing piece...

WaggyPolly WaggyPolly made an interesting response, in the form of a question. To the effect (a paraphrase); "When will you PLEASE release all that pain and feel the joy of living that's waiting for you?". I wanted to respond there myself... but considering the length of this post here... Well, best not to go cluttering up her blog.

The first few times I visited the GOTD's postings, I can remember feeling the exact same thing. Wondering just how it is that one person, omnipotent though Eos, Goddess of the Dawn, may be, could carry so much pain.

Recently though, I've been honored to have had an "advanced" reading of a couple of her pieces. One in particular actually made me gasp in total surprise, wondering if she'd been rummaging through my journal at night while I slept.

Except for a single word, it was me. It captured EXACTLY what I was feeling only few months back, right down to the setting. I've gone back through most of her past offerings and noted that some of her works seem to mirror thoughts and feelings of many of the other residents of Blogville in their own posts.

Could it be that she really does harbor that level of suffering?

Is she perhaps so much like the rest of us that we also empathize with her in what she writes?

Or could it be that, in some instances anyway, she's reading these feelings and emotions in what we write and giving them a new, unique and expressive voice?

Perhaps we can beguile the Goddess to give her reasons... I know, I'd like to read them.
