  1. I really enjoyed this post. My first time here at your blog. It seems you were made both a follower and a leader but perhaps it is one, over another, that your heart gravitates towards.This post reminds me of how we are sometimes drawn back into the past, revering our former roles with a fond nostalgic bitter-sweet gaze, Thanks for the great read. I “liked” you on fb. 🙂

    • Welcome! Your comment gives me another point to think of. Perhaps you are right in that I may be nostalgic for my good old past as I search for my true nature. Thank you for liking my page on facebook!

  2. I think there is a symbol working its way through this story. You are the sun. You were running away from yourself, which we all do. But now, as you get older, you want to return to your childhood self – the self that is untainted by the world, the self that is like the rising sun.

    I like the entry.

  3. Welcome to my blog! I am just a beginner blogger and am so excited to have your comment. Your interpretation of the symbolism really interests me because I didn’t think of it when writing, but with your comment I begin to look into where it came from. Perhaps from deep in my subconsciousness. I must have conflicts between my socially responsible adulthood reality and the innocent childhood. I will keep searching. Thanks for such an insightful comment!
