Dear Mr. Hawthorne, Thank you for your Observation

"The sick in mind, and, perhaps, in body are rendered more darkly and hopelessly so by the manifold reflection of their disease, mirrored back from all quarters in the deportment of those about them; they are compelled to inhale the poison of their own breath, in infinite repetition." Nathaniel Hawthorne, House of the Seven Gables, 1851.

I choose to interact with few people because of this.  When people hear my story they want to mirror back to me that I am sick.  I am a complex spirit and not many can understand me.  The lack of their ability shall not diminish who I know myself to be.  I can perceive things others cannot.  That does not make me a lesser human being.  I refuse to accept the mirroring of people who have not the ability to see.  My own breath shall not be poison to inhale.

I bought the House of the Seven Gables at the House of the Seven Gables when I was in Salem in April, 2013.  I am enjoying the book now.  At the House of the Seven Gables I was fortunate to me a little boy who was visiting there as well.  He was a descendant of Nathaniel Hawthorne.
