“You are the first thought came in my mind,

you are the colour of my wine.

you are the part of my life that i chose.

you are the precious platinum of mine,

my love…you are my Sunshine.”

Now that I’ve leveled out my learning curve (for the most part, anyway), these people–and others–come forth and speak for me, too. They’re not meaning to. They’re intending to speak for themselves. But their words and their stories echo and mirror mine.

For a long time, there was a canyon. I stood on one side. The world stood on the other. I could never figure out how to cross it, or even to build a bridge.

But even the Grand Canyon has an “Echo Point”, a place in which you can perch and shout and be heard throughout the land, as far as the…
