The Alienness of Man

Whenever I meet a new person, I am struck by his or her alienness. This person has a whole life narrative and web of relationships of which I can scratch the surface, but cannot know comprehensively. To make matters more complicated, this person has a heart the size of a cavern with many unexplored chambers. Human beings are aliens, sojourners, and exiles on this earth. When two souls explore each other, it is a holy, fearful thing.
