  • I know I'm a colorful personality. Maybe something bright and fun...with some strange undertones and random splotches of god-knows-what. So yes, most days I'll be joking with everyone and smiling brightly. I'll be the chattiest of Kathys and you won't get a single sound in. I'll be energetic and full of life - mostly spastic, awkward motions, but life nonetheless. I'll make it known in too many ways that I'm around, and that I think everyone needs to pay attention to me. But then, there are other days...

    I'm more of an off-white with some grey highlights. I'm not in any way upset. I'm not in any way angry.Or disappointed. Shocked. Devastated. Confused. Heartbroken. Aggravated. None of that. These other days, I'm just at neutral. I'm completely fine, honestly I'm probably pretty happy. Just because my lips are staying more at rest, or because my hands sit still does not mean there is something wrong. Just because I move a little slower and interact a little less is not a cause for alarm. These days are just my days. They are days I can take time to collect my own thoughts. They are days I can make my own opinions. They are days I can plan and create and imagine and wonder. So don't worry on those days where I seem to fade a little, those are my days to freshen my coat of color.

    I guess that's the thing with moods, though. They aren't quite like colors. You can't see them and know exactly what they are.
