Let me be something...

"let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. let me be happy; let me be sad. let me be cold; let me be warm. let me be hungry…have too much to eat. let me be ragged or well dressed. let me be sincere- be deceitful. let me be truthful; let me be a liar. let me be honorable and let me sin. only let me be something every blessed minute. and when i sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost."

Good thought! I too would much rather feel, and feel deeply, even the conflicting and difficult emotions, than to walk through life feeling nothing.
