When I cry, there can be a moment when I become fascinated by my emotional state. The focus of my thoughts shifts from the source of the emotion to the emotion itself, and I find myself assuming the role of an empathetic outside observer. As salt rolls down my cheeks, I try to step aside, making room for the emotion to penetrate every corner of my being. This process consumes me with an unexpected gratitude for being moved so deeply. Tears of loss coincide with tears of joy. It confuses me, and it makes me laugh. To be human is so very amazing.
