This week: Describe exultation.
Eyes closed. Head thrown back. Mouth open. Breath held in. All at once thousands of tiny birds take flight, each of my nerve endings attached to their miniscule feet. As they soar the feelings of pleasure swell and are made thin, stretching until the heart feels it might break with the sweetness of it. All together the nerve endings snap back into place, the breath is released, and the head falls forward onto the chest with a bump. In my mind’s eye I watch the birds fly away.
Next week: The time you were the most terrified – your knees were knocking, your heart was racing, you could barely stand to be in your own skin.
