“I’m like everyone else, a bundle of feelings and emotions. Maybe unique, realizing we all overflow with LIMITLESS LOVE. Maybe unique since I feel it all and if folks happen to be near those feelings are witnessed. Such efficient and humane way to live. Energy is conserved, no need for drugs or alcohol, stuffing food, or ill thoughts for self or others. No need to stifle or bury feelings. What is felt is felt. What is real in the flicker of each moment is acknowledged and felt. Only when absolutely necessary, perhaps when another has involvement, are feelings held in wait for a new day.” (A bona fide rambling!)

Yes, for a static setting, my choice is neutral.” 6/10/2016
