  1. Knowing someone else feels the same way - feels good.
    Knowing that the way I feel sometimes reflects on my state of soul - feels bad.
    Knowing I am loved by God nonetheless - feels good.
    Thought up two "feels good" and one "feels bad" - feels OK. ;)

  2. as per the Richard Rohr comment, everything belongs

    if there was no feel bad, how would we know if something felt good :)

  3. What's a baby spliff?

    This post made me feel good...and bad. But mostly good cause I love your honesty, insight and

    (Is it illegal to listen to an ipod on the train?)

  4. Barefoot Barbara - it always strikes me when I write something and then someone else can relate because they feel the same way. What's the deal with that, thinking you're the only person in the universe to feel that way?

    Being so narcissistic that you think you'e the only person in the universe feeling a particular way - feels stupid :)

    Kel - yeah, I agree. I wonder, if the bad wasn't there, would I still get teh bubbles of excitement? Are they only in reaction to not feeling bad, or does feeling good have its own stratosphere? (I wonder about a perceived future time where no evil exists - what would good feel like in that situation?)

    Barbara - I hate to admit (feels bad) that a baby spliff is a small joint filled with illegal marijuanic substances :(

    No, it's not illegal to listen to an ipod on the train (see, I was listening to my portable newfangled mp3 player :) But it IS somewhat socially illegal to be orgasmically excited on public transport ;)
