Answer for question 4304.

Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you find it easy or hard to jump into a conversation or activity with others? Why do you think this is?
Well, no, i don't enjoy meeting new people
Whether i can jump into a conversation depends on the topic. Ninety five percent of the time (sports, weather, politics, celebrities) no i can't. On those few topics that i am interested in or obsessed with its hard to keep me from dominating it. The reason for both answers is that i am autistic. I often wish i wasn't and relations with people is the main reason for that wish.

Jacopone da Todi (Jacopone Benedetti) - As air becomes the medium for light when the sun rises

As air becomes the medium for light when the sun rises,
And as wax melts from the heat of fire,
So the soul drawn to that light is resplendent,
Feels self melt away,
Its will and actions no longer its own.
So clear is the imprint of God
That the soul, conquered, is conqueror;
Annihilated, it lives in triumph.
