Mrs. Nesbitt’s ABC-Wednesday
My 138th entry – bijdrage
Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G
Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!
The challenging letter of this week is N and I’ve chosen for the word: Nothing
Thinking about that word… I realize that I think that it is a strange word because what does it really mean? Does it even really exist?
In the province of The Netherlands, where I was born and raised, we have flat land, and much much much empty spaces like you see on my photo. One can look for miles and miles and see no living creature… just the location you’re in…
One could say, there is nothing but is that really true? Can one see nothing, can one hear nothing, can one feel nothing? I would say: No one can not because there is always something, no matter how small, invisible even maybe, but still, there is something. To be seen, to be heard, to be felt.
In another way… having to live with a bi-polar disorder… nothing is a word that can frighten me sometimes. How strange is that, as I am convinced at the same time that ‘nothing’ does not exist? Still my conviction does not always have the upperhand. Feeling ‘nothing’ is not possible but feeling ‘alone’ in the sense that there is nothing / nobody for you at such a desperate moment… makes anxious.
Nothing… if it were up to me I would erase that word in any language, or change it into something which tells us that it is something ‘strange’, non existent even perhaps. What ever it really it… we all see, we all hear, we all feel. We all are human and living. Life is, however less it sometimes might look, never nothing but always something.
I am very curious to your ideas about this word, so please share them with me?
Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~
