My mother said to me,
“Some people are not very intelligent.”
It occurs to me that I hadn’t realised this is true completely. That I always assume more of people.
A friend said,
“A lot of them don’t understand English.”
This makes me wonder if people even know what I am saying.
So as a writer I am in a difficult position. To be abstract is more than enough to confuse. Though even simple language can confuse people. They remember facts differently than you tell them and believe things about you that they make up in their own heads.
