Brain States

Filed under: Uncategorized — ononehand @ 7:03 pm

My brain has two states: the attentive state and the speaking state. I sometimes call them “observational” vs. “excited.” One state looks calmly at things outside, thinking reflectively, and my pulse is very slow. I’m relaxed. The other state laughs, races, and demands attention. I enter it when I speak to more than one person, when I drink, when I move fast.

When I switch too quickly from the former to the latter, I always blush. It’s why when I’m called upon unexpectedly to speak to a group I turn red. I’m not embarrased or uncomfortable – it’s just the blood racing to other parts of my brain, while my heart gears up to feed a stronger thought: the swell of blood splashes across my face in a rozy flush through the havoc.
