The uncanniest feelings

The uncanniest feelings are those that bring with them an uncertainty as to what is being felt.  It starts, for example, with a sense of lightness, a sense of flight, of being turned upside-down.  Some would say they are queasy, others in great anticipation (whether for the dreaded or desired may not be clear), others would say they are feeling the ripples of gratitude for a gift, or for some, again unknown, treasure bestowed to them through their bodies.  Reflecting here in order to discover what is approaching is difficult, because it is precisely such a feeling that can be the most overwhelming, the most demanding of our resources.  We can be enraptured precisely by the uncertainty of feeling.
