April 2, 1942-Etty Hillesum

80 years ago today. Thursday morning, 8:00 o’clock.

“There was that remarkable and invisible current between us… the sexual and erotic element in me has gradually been conditioned to play a subordinate role to human warmth, although that warmth is intense and passionate enough.”

Etty Hillesum

Have you experienced this type of invisible current? For me, it doesn’t occur often, but when it does, it is evident and usually purposeful. Let me know in the comments if you relate. ✨
