I'm not sure exactly what it is, but all of a sudden today I've been feeling things with a much greater intensity than normal.

I stepped outside earlier to meet up with Bird and Hannah for dinner and suddenly I was so happy that I was shaking (the reason for this emotion wasn't lost on me though). I was laughing to myself, skipping a bit, and I actually felt some tears welling up. It lasted about 20 minutes or so and then I was back to normal.

After dinner, I suddenly felt tired. Extremely tired. I even wobbled a bit while standing on a corner with Bird and Hannah, so I decided to come home. That one lasted about 30 minutes or so. I was close to passing out on the train except I got an e-mail that brought me back. The tiredness finally passed about halfway through my walk home.

Finally, just now as I was ripping the best of anthology of Nina Simone (thank you, Nadja) and I tried listening to "Strange Fruit", but I had to stop it because again I had tears welling up. Not that it is a ridiculous response to such a sad song, but it's just that I'm not sure I've ever cried because of a song. Even now as I'm writing this I can feel the waves of sadness lapping at my solar plexus.

Not sure what's going on, but I think maybe it's about time for bed. I don't think my body has come back to homeostasis yet.
