orchid, spring

(It was on VH1 this morning, so sue me.)

Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas

One thing I didn't clarify in my entry last night is that I think one of the reasons I was feeling amygdala-less* is that I got an email that made me cry in a good way, and which I think in a way gave me permission to be vulnerable.

* "You know how... You get scared. Or worried, or nervous. And you don't want to be scared or worried or nervous, so you push it to the back of your mind. You try not to think about it. The limbic system is what lets you do that -- it's like a filter in your brain that keeps your feelings in check. They took that filter out of River. She feels everything. She can't not." -Simon in "Ariel"
