Sometimes it’s like the lifting of something. A burden, or a veil. You see clearer then, things suddenly begin to talk, or even swing. It happens, not of your doing, like a dance. Sometimes it’s the opposite, you are drawn into something, but feel paralyzed, unable to make the right move. You get bigger, clumsier, struggling hard to keep out, take a breath, keep your balance. Sometimes it’s none of these, more like a careful response to something, you are clear-minded and rational. You weigh your risks, place your bets, try to stay true. You fend off the temptations and open your heart.
