I can’t imagine living the way Felicity has had to, Jacinda either for that matter. When I was growing up we moved around a lot, I averaged two schools a year for most of my childhood so I can relate to moving as much as Felicity has had to. What I couldn’t do is remove myself from the normal things in life. I may have moved around often, but I was still able to have friends and interact with people.
Felicity and Jacinda from the Hidden Senses Trilogy don’t have the rainbow world most of us have—a world we don’t even realize we are privileged to have. They can’t go out into crowds or populated places. What would happen if Jacinda went to a movie theatre? It could debilitate her for days and if Felicity had one of her visions while surrounded by strangers…
There’s the loneliness they must suffer through not being able to have a normal relationship, or even a relationship at all.
While writing this trilogy I had to go to a place in my life where I sat back and looked around noting the things I took for granted. Things like chatting with a friendly stranger while waiting in a line, stopping to smile at a cute baby, holding the door for an elderly person while out shopping. I’m not a great lover of ‘shopping’ in the first place, but to not be able to pop out and go check something out wouldn’t be something I was happy with.
We’ve all had times where we weren’t able to physically something, whether from surgery or injury for a short period of time. I know I have at least and having to adapt my every day routine around that was frustrating and nerve wracking at the same time. Felicity and Jacinda from the Hidden Senses live that every single day of their lives.
My hats off to them for have the strength and courage I don’t have.
