Snow flakes. by Emily Dickinson

I counted till they danced so
Their slippers leaped the town,
And then I took a pencil
To note the rebels down.
And then they grew so jolly
I did resign the prig,
And ten of my once stately toes
Are marshalled for a jig!

Not sure what I'm gonna do with this or where its headed?

there are basically 6 emotions, emphasis on basic; all other feelings spring from them. some think there are more, some less, as many as 11, but that's not the point here.there are about 500 words in the english language identifying feelings. Illustrate.
It is healthy to have an awareness of your emotions, to acknowledge them, and to identify them, especially in recovery. Why is that? In order to manage them better. Feelings often lead to behaviors and for the addict the default behaviour is boozsky.
  • love
  • joy
  • anger
  • sadness
  • fear, and
  • shame

What's it progress

I live inside my head Most times, and I have since I was two. how about you.
What’s it like In there? Under that hair? tell me what’s the weather like. Quiet and calm?
Like a Snowy lane Sun shines bright Snow goes away. Or stormy and gray One stays pale that way. What’s the tempo like in there Are you free to do as you like Away from the crush Of mean folk Hunger and affected mush? What kind of place is it In that storied noggin.
Is it as nice as I imagine Is there whiskey and gin Can you let your work go til you're ready to begin again Can you sing, can you dance, is there plenty of chance to play with your friends.
Or is someone hoggin all the fun.

Wisdom 7:22-8:1

There is in her a spirit that is intelligent, holy,
unique, manifold, subtle,
mobile, clear, unpolluted,
distinct, invulnerable, loving the good, keen,
irresistible,beneficent, humane,
steadfast, sure, free from anxiety,
all-powerful, overseeing all,
and penetrating through all spirits
that are intelligent, pure, and altogether subtle.

For wisdom is more mobile than any motion;
because of her pureness she pervades and penetrates all things.

For she is a breath of the power of God,
and a pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty;
therefore nothing defiled gains entrance into her.

For she is a reflection of eternal light,
a spotless mirror of the working of God,
and an image of his goodness.

Although she is but one, she can do all things,
and while remaining in herself, she renews all things;
in every generation she passes into holy souls
and makes them friends of God, and prophets;
for God loves nothing so much as the person who lives with wisdom.

She is more beautiful than the sun,
and excels every constellation of the stars.
Compared with the light she is found to be superior,
for it is succeeded by the night,
but against wisdom evil does not prevail.

JPR: worth the keepnig.

Prayer by Robert Louis Stevenson

I ask good things that I detest,
With speeches fair;
Heed not, I pray Thee, Lord, my breast,
But hear my prayer.

I say ill things I would not say -
Things unaware:
Regard my breast, Lord, in Thy day,
And not my prayer.

My heart is evil in Thy sight:
My good thoughts flee:
O Lord, I cannot wish aright -
Wish Thou for me.

O bend my words and acts to Thee,
However ill,
That I, whate'er I say or be,
May serve Thee still.

O let my thoughts abide in Thee
Lest I should fall:
Show me Thyself in all I see,
Thou Lord of all.

jpr: also worth the keep
