Not to quote myself quoting the Tao de Ching, but there really is a time and a place for everything. Today, one of my dear friends told me she experienced every emotion in existence (with the exception of wrath) before noon. I congratulated her. "Way to go being in step with the universe!" I said. Since tomorrow's the longest day of the year, things seem to feel FULL. I know they do for me. I'm still working on feeling my feelings. On noticing them, making space for them and investigating them. It's easy to globalize: "I'm cold," when actually just my feet are cold and they feel not so much cold, as pins-and-needlesly. Or: "I'm sad," when actually there's just a kinda tight, or maybe a dry void type of non-thing in my throat and tears are falling out of my eyes. As some lady in a pop song once said, "Feel it all."
