The words fit to me like a piece fits into a jigsaw puzzle. I had been looking for that piece, that verbal expression, for a very long time. It slid into place and became part of my personality.
That part of my personality does not lend itself to actions such as peeking through keyholes, hunting down open windows, using binoculars to spy on the neighbors, or secretly videotaping unsuspecting bathers.
No. If you saw the movie "Sex, Lies, and Videotape" you might understand me a little better. The film "Being There" also has a fond moment that fits well into the puzzle of me. These are good examples of shared intimacy, from a slight distance.
The beauty of the natural person - be it physical beauty, emotional beauty, or the secret beauty of the soul - This is what I prefer to see. To peer beyond the glitter of the practiced personality. To go beyond. To see beneath. To experience the giddy release of a once constrained, self-expression.
This is me.
Now... who are you?
