to borrow from today's a.word.a.day:
It has always seemed absurd to suppose that a god would choose for his companions, during all eternity, the dear souls whose highest and only ambition is to obey.
-Robert Green Ingersoll, lawyer and orator (1833-1899)
it's a good morning. I have a pervading sense of well-being– which is just a phenomenal feeling. this is comprised of a few key elements: feeling well and properly seen and heard and treasured by my partner; making the time/space to reflect and ground; spending a lovely evening talk-talk-talking with a good new girlfriend; waking to quiet.
some people are adrenalin junkies– I am an emotional junkie. I feel that I am at my best when feeling a lot, intensively. this isn't a modus operandi that works for everyone, and I've caught flak for it my entire life. I'm not the sort who creates drama so that I can be the frontman in my own show– it's a different sort of thing, more internal and personally textured– I simply want to feel a lot. and so I do, and so I am.
some things that are moving me lately:
