I am so pleased to welcome the extraordinarily talented Nausicaa Twila to The Lithium Chronicles.
I compartmentalize things.
Yes, that’s right.
Like a soldier.
Like they teach you in FBI training.
I know this only from movies and from the show “Alias”; but it must be so in real life too. We have small packaged rooms for our feelings. And they must not ever overlap. That would cause chaos, inner pandemonium.
We must be able to be happy without mixing it with despair. Or must we simply be real?
My writing is my space to create a mixture. A little of these feelings, a little of those…all from different rooms in my mind. Creating a cocktail of feelings. Nameless emotions. New breeds of thought…inner pandemonium, released…
I can’t do it all the time, or else, I may cry openly to the cashier or collapse in the middle of the sidewalk or lay down in the library gazing at the books and ceiling. It’s not appropriate and I am aware of that much. These are the feelings I keep in padded rooms within my psyche.
Maybe I will be able to be the rainbow that I am
Until then, I will keep these green eyes shining with redemption for the locked up peices of all the anonymously beautiful minds…
