I am having an unusual day today. I am crying a lot, all kinds of things are bringing tears to my eyes. Good memories, thoughts of people I miss, places I’d like to be, sad situations that remain sad, observing kind things that people do, well, the list goes on. I am not feeling unhappy, or sad, or depressed, no, I just cry about things that come to mind. My thoughts are many, varied, brief, non-analytical, and very succinct.
Good grief, I am becoming dehydrated! I will have to pour myself a large juice and soda and sit quietly for a while.
Life is pretty good right now. Maybe I’ve just been letting these emotions pile up until the resulting tower tipped. Maybe it is the rain, which has been falling all day. Or maybe I don’t know why today is a river of tears day, and all I need to do is let the day flow by as it will. “I don’t know” is the only answer I have, and it works, because it is true.
