Welcome to Silentio Sonante – the ponderings of my inner mind. I am Andria Kennedy: freelance writer, writer of science fiction and fantasy (please feel free to visit my other blog, Antihero Kreative, if you’re interested in that aspect of things), and, yes, a fellow warrior of depression and anxiety.

Without thinking, we use language to hedge our words and ideas. It’s a learned response from our formative years. To avoid stepping on toes or calling attention to ourselves, we add phrases into the dialogue. And we don’t realize how small and confined it makes us.
Ask the average person what their favorite season is, and they’ll usually mention spring or summer. People enjoy the light (or warmth). They don’t want to go into the darkness. Entire cultures emerged out of fire and holding back the shadows. But some of us? We don’t mind winter. Explaining that love, though, gets complicated.
