Degree’s

in fight or flight, a false dichotomy has been given to me. but first, i wish to speak about the Degree’s-

please, oh please, bear with me as i haven’t spoke let alone written in weeks, and i must get this out of me…

as i see it, as i live it, and as i feel it, emotions are like colors. there isn’t just one shade or degree of either. let us take for example, love. it is easy for me to say that i love pizza and let’s just use the color red to attach to it because it is the color most commonly associated with love.

i’ve lived all over this country, and everywhere i have lived, i have also eaten pizza. but, i am from Chicago and no other pizza compares to Chicago pizza. i still ate it though, in fact, it is safe to say that i loved every bite. this “love” though, when eating a slice of pizza that wasn’t as close to being as good as Chicago pizza, even though i’d say it was still red, it wasn’t the same shade or degree as the red i felt from that good ole Chicago pizza. it wasn’t that deep, rich, red, no. it was faintly red, a pink almost and contained in itself a lower degree or temperature…

again, please bear with me, as this post is not about pizza, it’s about the Degree’s required for survival…

the human body can only survive between certain Degree’s. if we get too hot, we die. if we get too cold, we die. every single thing we get, give, consume, experience, share, project, or imagine has its own degree, color shade, and or temperature just as with something as simple as pizza does and inside of each and every one of us, there exists a thermometer which holds our core temperature. too much of something hot, we die. too much of something cold, we die…

there is a center degree each one of us hold that makes us feel the most at home, the most comfortable, or the most alive, but we are unable to simply maintain this degree on our own. we must lie, we must eat, sleep, share, give, get, project, and imagine and everything has it’s own temp, shade, or degree which causes our core temp, shade, or degree to vary up or down. too much in either direction, and we die…

each one of our senses, you do remember, right? the ones that have proven to be oh so deceptie, are the ones that are responsible for detecting color, taste, temp, depth, richness, and the degree of all things that we see, share, feel, give, and get that varies our core temperatures…

i feel black and white today, cold…

stay up; stay human too…
