Emotions

Hi everyone! Let’s talk about emotions today. I want to talk about them in a pure observational way. No trying to understand, no whys. The main questions I am curious about is whether there is a dominant feeling in your life and whether there are specific emotions associated with specific times of the day. Starting...

SnapDragon Speaks: On The Same Side.

Popsicle Breath, 2021. Pennsylvania. Original Photo by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved, yo. I fondly remember the days of grammar-school playgrounds; of brown-bagged lunches; of field trips to museums, caverns, and coal mines. I remember the sense of belonging within those classroom walls. There was a constance amongst us kids: a comradery that strengthened with... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On Knowing.

Beauty in Three, 2017. Original Painting by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved, yo. There are many things I do not know. Like what it takes to make a light switch work; or how many species of bird reside in my home state. I do not know advanced mathematic formulas; I do not know why the... Continue Reading →

The Meaning Of Your Life

A life is infinitesimal in the grand scheme of things. When you zoom the lens out, when you consider the enormity of existence. A life is but a speck in the vastness of time and space. A life is nothing. It matters not a jot. But when you zoom the lens in, past all of... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On The Dark.

Original Painting by SnapDragon X. Acrylic on Canvas. 2017. I’m afraid of the dark. Like, for real. And it’s not because I think there are trolls in the basement, or Civil War ghosts in the attic. (But—ahem—now that I’ve revived that thought, I might crawl into bed even earlier tonight.) (pulls the blanket up to... Continue Reading →

Internal Peace

Hi all, How have you been? It has been a long time since we last interacted here! I missed you all! I took a long-ish break from writing but not from thinking. So, we will meet here regularly now to discuss what I have been thinking about. I want to discuss what it means to... Continue Reading →

The Good Side of Emotions

Hi everyone, Welcome to another Sunday post about my quarantine reflections! This is turning into a weekly report of what I contemplate most on that given week. In my post last week (here), I talked about emotional ups and downs quarantine is causing us to experience. So, this week, I thought a bit more on... Continue Reading →

Love

Hi everyone, I have been thinking about emotions lately. Their depth, their intricacies, their flow. How they are much more powerful than logic, whether we admit to this or not. Then, I started thinking about the emotions that are especially more powerful than others, at least for me. Love is one of them. Love is... Continue Reading →

Where do frustrations come from?

Our inner universe is so complex that we end up having different thoughts and emotions without knowing where the hell they come from. Obviously, that’s where frustrations come from, but what actually triggers them? What creates them? Is there anything we can do about them? Should we do something about them? I believe we need...

The Impulse to Write

Does it ever happened to you to feel an impulse to write, even though the moments are not so appropriate? And even stranger, when you want to write, the words won’t come? It very often happens to me to just wander around and all of a sudden BOOM! Writing idea! And then I pounder on... Continue Reading →

Triggers are Everywhere

Did it ever happen to you to go peacefully through your day and them someone said some dumb sh*t that means something to you and that blew off your “peaceful day”? I’m sure it did, but how often does that happen? And why does it happen in the first place? It’s mainly because of our... Continue Reading →

Why is Fear so Important?

We’re always afraid of something. It’s part of our human nature and it’s a survival instinct. When we’re afraid of something we tend to avoid that thing or to run away from it, which will strengthen both the fear and our response to it. However, fear is just an emotion, just like joy. It’s not... Continue Reading →
