Those of you who have known me for a while know I have a hard time deciding on favorites; you know like a favorite movie, song, actor, etc. if I had to narrow it down though, I’d say one of my favorite movies ever is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory. The original one with Gene Wilder and little people. Don’t bring that Johnny Depp stuff around my way. It was alright, it just isn’t the same. I like my Oompa Loompas with orange skin and green hair.

One of the best scenes in the movie is when Violet puts the  gum in her mouth and turns herself into a blueberry. She insists, against the good advice of Willy, to chew on the gum, never stopping even after she begins to change. Am I the only person who has wondered if Violet could have averted disaster by spitting out the gum?

There is such a huge metaphor for life here.  We take things in because we just HAVE to have them, then we find ourselves swelling and bursting from the things we have taken in. We hold onto things when everything in us is screaming that they are no good and we should spit them out. It is only after we are purple and stewing in the juices of our own bad decisions that we see it is time to make a change.
Confession: I am René, and I suppress my emotions. I’m turning violet.  I’m bursting at the seams.

After years of being told I’m too emotional, I have gotten it down to a science. If I stuff whatever emotions I don’t like waaaaay down, I’ll never have to deal. Or will I?

You see, the problem with suppression is that I have suppressed too much for too long. Now I am exploding. I am a supernova of emotions. I am Hiroshima. I am Chernobyl. I am crying. I am laughing. I am a basket case.

I’m also fresh out of ideas. Nothing satisfies me; I can’t write it away. I can’t think it away, and as hard as I try, I know stuffing it is only making it come back out. I need your help here: what do you do to release what you are feeling before you explode?

Purple and impatient,

René
