They say you can’t miss something you’ve never had. Blissful ignorance and all of that. What happens though when intentionally or not you actually experience what you have lived without for so long? What happens then? You are left with a sick longing in your heart and intense confusion in your mind. You don’t realize how much you miss something until its made real. Then all of a sudden you become abundantly aware that it’s gone. There it is in all it’s unfulfilled glory and it leaves you begging for blissful ignorance again.
I’m sure we can go about life enjoying what’s there (and there is a LOT there) but I’m not so sure we can live fully with a wall in our way. I guess it really doesn’t matter because the wall serves a huge purpose. It’s protecting us from seeing what’s missing and that can be a real blessing. Man made ignorance.
The wall can stand for only so long though. That’s the part that brings us back to thinking about what’s on the other side. Knowing somewhere deep within, that the wall isn’t going to last forever. Nothing man made ever does.
