Public Writing

In awe of the introverted (raising hand) who share their inner lives here, exposing private thoughts to an unknown, unseen public.
Do you ever read your posts as if they were not written by you and wonder 1: what readers think and 2: wonder what the writer was thinking writing these words out loud? When did writers become exhibitionists? Public speaking frightens me. Public writing does not.

You write into the void. You are unsure if you are talking to yourself. You wonder if people care. You wonder why you are compelled to write to perhaps an empty audience.
The you is me.
If anyone is wondering, I read you and I care.
Keep writing. The words seep in. They are life savers.
