“Feelings are like subway trains … there will be another one along in 5 minutes.”
This is a saying that has stuck with me since the early 1990’s when I took a workshop, with my friend Ann Mortifee.
I use the wisdom (and humour) of it all the time, to keep check with my emotions and feelings. I like to feel it all, live deeply, but knowing that feelings are meant to keep moving, and this quote reminds me to not get stuck in any one emotion or state of being for very long.
