I'm having one of those hyperventilating, conniption-fittin', massive freak-out days. I'm an introvert and a stifler, though, and you probably wouldn't know it if you saw me. My eyes are threatening to give my foul mood away, threatening to spill over with hot, mad, frustrated tears.
Lately, whenever I get in such a tizz, there are a couple of images that soothe me, a few snapshots of things I love flash on the screen in my head, like a Zen slide show: Magpie. Library. Book. Snow.
Or, I should stay true to my compelled form, here:
Book. Snow. Library.
To whisper these lovely words,
calms my quickened pulse.
