A strange man greeted me at the door robed in the most peculiar of vestments. I felt as if electrodes had been stuck to my brain and I was being used as a guinea pig for some sort of weird and sick experiments. There was nothing I could do as I was swept along on a wild ride that took me to the depths and plateaus of my emotions. As I listened I felt like a man empowered, like I could do anything that I put my meager grey matter towards. I made a picture with my hands, something I could never do before. I heard strange songs that took me to places I didn't know existed. I could feel as never before. The vibrations blazing around the room were completely enticing to loose yourself in. I lost myself; everything of my being was completely and utterly gone, only to be found sitting listening to an album of music. It was one of the most lasting experiences of my life. I felt completely like pudding.
I'm going to make a needlepoint picture
of happiness and hang it on my wall.
Then I will make a needlepoint picture
of sadness and hang it on the other wall
across from the needlepoint picture
That way, when I am happy, I can stand
near the wall with the needlepoint picture
of happiness hanging on it, and when
I am sad, I can stand near the other wall,
the wall with the needlepoint picture
of sadness hanging on it.
When I am not feeling happy or sad,
I will stand in the center of the room,
or I will stand in a different room,
where there are not
of happiness or sadness.
I think that this is going to work very well.
