Today I feel warmth in my chest and on my face, because I feel the pleasure of a new emotional connection.
That is both good news and bad news.
Good news, because I had almost forgotten what it feels like. It’s absolutely wonderful, and I find it far more interesting than lust or limerence because it does not tax the body or the mind by draining the energy out of it. I like to remember that this good stuff makes human bond together and societies hold. I like to remember that it has happened before, as my friends are coming to visit me for New Year’s eve and now I will doubleplus thank them for being my friends.
Bad news, because I had almost forgotten what it feels like. Which means that I do not find many occasions to have it happen. Or maybe I do not hang out with the right people. Whatever. Now I want more of it and I do not really know what to do.
Hence another resolution for 2007: hang out with more people and see the good in all of them, to connect more often.
