Sympathy (Feeling Together)

The Icy Sun
In a very real way we are each in this life alone,
yet we are capable of sympathy.
Through it, we can make others feel they are not alone at all.

This is the greatest gift you can give another:
the feeling that they are not other.

I love this post. As someone who works with engineers I am sometimes dispirited by the apparent emotional vacuum I find myself in. It's nice to see someone who can be technically minded and empathetic. And THAT makes me feel less alone. :-)

Thanks, Kelly. I really value your letting me know. It is something that happens only rarely, and it is very important to me.
