Thanks for sharing Mono! I have experienced this "phasing in and out between two forms of expression". It reminds me that the human psyche is an incredible force which is constantly making subtle (and not so suble) adjustments whether we realize it or not. These adjustments assist us in navigating our way through relationships and life in general.
