When I learn a lot — at a group psychotherapy conference or elsewhere — I feel light.
When there is absence of pain, after the experience of physical or mental pain, I feel light.
When I see unexpected candy with unusual shapes, I feel light:
When I experience anger, shame, joy, sadness, fear, love, and other feelings in the presence of others and realize I am not alone, I feel light.
When I see unusual and unexpected lighting, I feel light.
When I am surprised by fireworks, I feel light.
There was a lot of light yesterday.
Thanks to the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy for their three-day yearly conference, to the town of Winchester Massachusetts (for the lamps and the “town day” fireworks, last night), to people who bravely shine a light on their hidden feelings and thoughts, and to you — of course! — for bringing your light here, today.
