The first few sentences of the Diaphane description kind of threw me off- I don’t like being pegged as the healer type, despite, well… How I am. But perhaps that’s just because that healing nature I hold within me has been out of my reach for several years now. Reading on, I found that everything the bearing said about me was truly reminiscent of who I was before I became somewhat numb, and knowing that I still have that kind of light within me, the ability to be kind, and that, right now, the person I am is only a reflection of the weights on my shoulders, and that I still have that possibility, for when I’m ready… Well, it reminds me that, one day, I will be ready. I’ll be free of the darkness and can step back into the role I’ve always meant to have. I’m just taking a break. The world is waiting patiently for me.
I also felt that the bearing very accurately reflects my ambiverted tendencies. I need my space, I need my alone time, I need my own freedom, but I’m also happy to help, nurture, and exist within the spaces of others. Sometimes my energy comes from myself, sometimes from others. I can hear the drumbeat from over here, and I can be found by those who need me, sat on the edge, smiling and listening along. The people who need and want me will be able to meet with me unless I’m in need of time alone. It’s a good setup. I’m happy with it.
I can’t say I have any idea of what Sight of Propinquity means, but considering Propinquity has to do with personal bonds and physical closeness, I suppose it allows one to understand things along those lines. To see the bonds between people, to read them, perhaps to trace or understand the interwoven feelings people hold for each other… I can’t help but imagine it as skeins of thread, or thick clusters of cables, conjoining the people of the world with colours and emotion.
