This is a wonderful site to explore emotions/wild writing/expressive writing/stream of consciousness.

Despite this, I still sing when a Beatles’ song comes on, even after they broke up

I dance with the Grateful Dead, despite Jerry Garcia being long gone

I color my imagination with pastels and dark reds, and bitter blues

I admire the soft-spoken, cringe at the loud, undecided about the overly friendly
