I get emotional

…especially this time of the year.

“The word ’emotion’ comes from the Latin, emovere, suggesting ‘to be moved, to be moved out’.  So emotions are what move us.  But emotions are also about attachments, about what connects us to this or that.  The relationship between movement and attachment is instructiveWhat moves us, what makes us feel, is also that which holds us in place, or gives us a dwelling place.  ….what attaches us, what connects us to this or that place, or to this or that other, such that we cannot stay removed from this other, is also what moves us, or what affects us such that we are no longer in the same place.” ~ Sara Ahmed
