the french have two words for "know":
i know as in i know what that is.
as in i know him.
the difference between these is simple.
to know something,
or to know someone; to be familiar with something.
my point is this:
there is a difference between knowing facts and knowing people.
you can know with your head, or you can know with your heart.
heart-knowing doesn't happen as often.
how many people do you know like you know the headlines of the newspaper,
and how many people do you know like you know the lyrics to your favorite song?
i think a lot of people need to be heart-known these days
because there's a big difference.
a big, distance-crossing difference.
