Telling.

We were doing one of those activities where you write or draw the answers to a bunch of questions that push the boundaries of your comfort zone.

Who are you?

Why are you here?

What do you want?

How will you get what you want?

I didn’t know what to draw, so instead, I wrote some sayings and such that I’ve had on my mind lately around the edges. Then I drew a few stick figures, the words “healing,” “transition,” and “renewal,” and included a short bit from a recent poem.

We laid all the pieces of paper on the floor. As we were leaving, a coworker was joking about what he wrote. After he left I went to see his piece:

“Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why Who what when where why”

It was written over and over and over, filling the page, only to end with:

“I’m fine, Mind your own business.”

And, like I said, he laughed it off but… It shook me a bit. It seemed telling. He meant to write nothing about himself, and yet, he said so much.

I fine though. Mind your own business.
