Realize (Part 1)


You alone know who I am when I’m alone.
Somehow, you came to realize the language of my humanity.
You saw through the tact that kept me so composed.

Tell me all the little things we’ve missed in the mirror.
Show me what eyes can’t see.

You make me feel different.

Show Me, Don’t Tell Me

For so long I’ve been told “show don’t tell”, and all I want to do is talk these days.

Living in this age where you have to capture life as it’s coming right at you is exhausting. Even with a camera in hand I sometimes find myself not wanting to film a thing while I am enjoying the moment. Maybe it’s just me, maybe I’m not ready to prove that I was there every single time. Some moments are just meant to be between you and I. Everyone doesn’t need to know everything.

I am talking about embarrassing things I did when I was thirteen, my scars, and those silly little thoughts that can’t be put on display. Can we make a memory if no one else knows that it happened?

I am more than I seem, and so are you. For so long I’ve been told “show don’t tell”, and all I want to do is talk these days.

Confide


Talk to me
Trust me with your words wrapped in emotions
Tell me your pain or pleasure, own it
Take your time, relive each moment if you must

Every word I’ve known has tried it’s hand at you
No meaning alone grasps your subtleties
You just know that you know more than you’ve seen
Pride & pain dance in vein knowing that you’ll outlast their routine

Ask what you will
Many mysteries want to be solved
Tell me what you want
Let me believe with you in that which gets the best of you

Quote: Speak & Listen


whispering couple - telling secrets - whispering in ear - gossip

SPEAK in such a way that others love to LISTEN to you.
LISTEN in such a way that others love to SPEAK to you.

Exciting Explorations


“I write to explore, not to excite.” – Stephen Quammie

After having a discussion with a friend of mine who is getting ready to publish another Ebook, I found myself stuck on this one line I said. I am always curious where one line will take me. Will I write something with ease or will it be an uphill battle?

I don’t really aim to grab anyone’s attention (yes, as a Writer I want to be read), I want to have a conversation, or a journey of sorts. I want my words to not only represent me, but to also be an extension of you. I don’t know you & you don’t know me, but on some level after scratching the surface, we aren’t all that different. I want to figure out what makes us click, while celebrating our differences.

You guys push me to be better. You inspire me with your vivid stories & gripping visuals. Looking at your world allows me to write & express things that are outside of my realm of knowledge or experience, but through connecting with you I am able to take on your joys & pains with you, in my own way.

Sometimes I’m not really writing about myself at all, I’ve just become the face of what someone is feeling because it’s easier to see & accept things from a distance. (Speaking of which, I need to get my eyes checked.)

I say all of that, to say this:

Life would be pretty boring without you. Thanks for being my muses.

Much love & respect,
Stephen Quammie (The Wandering Mind)
