See-Saw

13 Jul

Who is standing in the middle of these organs trying to balance the see-saw? That is the imaginary Mr Rational on the pivot, and he is a buzz kill.

My heart has taken over my prefrontal cortex. My frontal lobe has selective attention and there is only one thing on my mind. I am out of control and I like it.

And if I break my own heart while I wreck my brain: I will take a full strength Aspirin, wrap myself in sterile gauze, listen to my heart tones and check my pupils.

    just do what your heart tells you and live in peace!

      It is a dangerous battle for the soul: the heart vs the mind. I am pretty sure they go together, and being rational is not one of my characteristics most times anyway.
