Thursday Three – Feelings

1) How are you feeling right now? I’m feeling a bit on the tired side at the moment. I spent the entire day in front of my computer (shocker, eh?). Actually though, I haven’t just been sitting. I’ve been working on a couple of web sites. One of them is and the other is for cash. I’m happy, inspired and feeling pretty damn good. Thanks for asking.

2) What makes you sad? I could probably write a book on this question alone. What comes to mind when I think of the word is intolerance, ignorance, fear and the fact that human beings, for the most part, are not kind to one another. It makes me sad that people walk around unconsciously, not giving a thought to how their actions effect the Universe. I guess that’s not so much sad as it is disconcerting. I’ll just leave it at that, otherwise you’re going to get an essay.

3) Do you ever feel like being sad inspires you more than when you are happy? Absolutely, though I feel like both extremes inspire me. Sadness tends to inspire me to sit around, write about what I’m feeling and just kind of move through it. It almost always inspires retrospection and I tend to ask myself a lot of questions about why I am sad. On the flipside, and even though it’s not part of the question, happiness is very inspiring as well. It manifests in different ways though. I write more when I’m sad or feeling down. That’s something I need to work on. Who the hell wants to be sad all the time? I do like a little of both though.
