Moody Metaphors

Circular reasoning, OK. Circular emotions, not so good. Or is it the other way 'round? Visiting the basement of human emotions is not the nicest way to spend one's time, but sometimes you do have to go down there and sweep out the cobwebs. Probably not the a good place to spend most of your existence- although the washer and dryer are often there, and we can all benefit from taking care of our dirty laundry.
The kitchen of our emotional house is very important. The nourishment we get and give with others sustains and renews us. The living/recreational rooms allow us to spend our 'free' time in ways that aren't so charged with the daily give and take of interacting with our fellow beings. A study, or hobby room, allows us to retreat even further from the world into our own psyches'. The bedroom, the most intimate area, gives us a place to express our utter passion, and also fall into utter oblivion. And then you walk out the door, experience the world, with all its ups and downs, and the cycle starts all over again. Stimulation, boredom, activity, joy, despair renewal and a hundred other different 'moods'. When the mood ring is broken, when you become an emotional shut-in stuck in the same room day after day, then life loses its meaning.

We can all use a large and comfy Living Room!!

Sort of a place to let it all happen without too much scrutiny.

nice perspective as usual.
