Thank you for that suggestion. I might try that tonight. I wonder if it will help. I'll write back if it does.
Oh (wow, I keep thinking of things) I recently did this writing exercise, writing about a scene remembered from childhood, just writing nonstop for 2 minutes recalling everything i could, the thoughts and emotions and senses of the moment I was remembering, it was surprisingly refreshing, inspiring, and, I can't think of any other way to put it so I'll say it again, emotionally liberating.
