Half person

When you are only a half person and you come across one who is whole, how would you ever see him or her? The whole person would see you, of course, and hear you, although you could not hear him or her.

You are a half person when you are complete in yourself, when you see your world as composed of Its. You are a whole person when you are part with others in a larger life, seeing yourself as extended and opened by others known and met.

In one instance you are dying, in the other aborning. In one your dying senses shrivel in—how could you touch? In the whole you reach out and are often met.

When half you cannot see the whole in front of your face; when whole you see half and whole: how are the two to speak?
