I was very much in emotional mode when I saw him, and in trying to come up with words to describe what I was trying to say at one point "truculent" popped into my head, as did "glowering". But in looking up the definition, it didn't seem right. My understanding from the context it's usually used is slightly different from the textbook definition. This is why I like to have the words in advance. I am very very particular about what words I use.

Nothing he said did resonate, despite the fact that I was working from a nearly nonverbal level. In fact, perhaps the fact that I was working from a nearly nonverbal level guaranteed that his words wouldn't resonate. Maybe if he were really going to connect, he'd have had to use voice tone and posture. However, since I wrote the words down, maybe I can think about them till Monday and see if I can connect to them.

Hmmm....

Maybe I'm caught between wanting to have the words mean something, since they meant something to him, and being annoyed with him for so eagerly leaping on the topic of work when I had other topics planned for the session. Oh well, that's one good thing about long term therapy. I shouldn't worry overmuch if occasionally his agenda is different than mine. Or at least different from what I find important on this day.
