Zigs and Zags

A couple of days this week my emotions felt like the brain wave spikes on an EEG, or the heartbeats blipped out on an EKG. Sharp up, dive down.

Our son has this T-shirt:

I like to think that a "normal" day would look like that horizontal line _______.
But, of course, that is not realistic, or healthy. Or alive.

We need brain waves. We need heart beats. We need our emotions.
Even when they zig zag across our days like lightning bolts.
