Today’s prompt is Whole.
Staring out my library window at the dull grey morning I’m not sure where or what to write about for whole. Am I whole? Do I feel whole? What is whole? There’s the whole world that seems a little crazy with people, but then again there’s a whole world that goes on anyway. I haven’t been feeling well. It’s more an emotional illness, but nothing so tangible that I can give a name. I function, I smile, laugh, love, but a mild unease has been clinging to me just under the surface. I’ve been thinking a lot about all the changes. My college, my friends, my understanding of their importance. Mostly my friends. I hope for wholeness for them. I think wholeness could be a peaceful, confident sort of thing. I’d love to feel whole inside my skin…
