When she is happy, she can’t stop talking, when she is sad she doesn’t say a word.

A potentially productive process…

William James used the term metanoia to refer to a fundamental and stable change in an individual’s life-orientation.

Carl Jung developed the usage to indicate a spontaneous attempt of the psyche to heal itself of unbearable conflict by melting down and then being reborn in a more adaptive form - a form of self-healing often associated with the mid-life crisis and psychotic breakdown, which can be viewed as a potentially productive process.

Jung considered that psychotic episodes in particular could be understood as an existential crisis which might be an attempt at self-reparation: in such instances metanoia could represent a shift in the balance of the personality away from the persona towards the shadow and the self. ~Wikipedia

Alone, I often fall down into nothingness. I must push my foot stealthily lest I should fall off the edge of the world into nothingness. I have to bang my head against some hard door to call myself back to the body.

Virginia Woolf, The Waves

Raw from the inside
Cold on the outside
Cryogenic preservation of the
Persistence of my memory

Now lost in melancholy 
Without a door to escape
From this cold on the inside
Raw from the outside
