How does my mind work? We are all bipolar.

I have been considering your remark about my mind, during this week of unforeseen harvest, Harper. My tentative conclusion is, that my mind reacts to the two faces of reality: the good, wise, beautiful, inspiring, loving face and the bad, stupid, ugly, paralyzing/annoying, hating face. To be true, I already know this for some time, but it came back as the answer to your remark about the way my mind works. The good face makes me happy, stimulates my creativity and opens me to the beauty of life, the bad face makes me unhappy, often mad, kills my creativity or stimulates the sardonic side of it, and shuts me off from the beauty of life. It is bipolarity light. What is more, I am convinced we all are bipolar. If we are lucky, we profit from this. If we have bad luck we might end in DSM. I will have to try to work this out, thanking you for the nudge you didn’t know you were giving.
