Holly Golightly summed up her anxious feelings as “the mean reds” in Truman Capote’s novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Not exactly “the blues,” it’s when “suddenly you’re afraid, and you don’t know what you’re afraid of.” She asks Paul if he ever has moments like that. While I have, I think that I’ve been going through moments of the “mean greens,” instead. I haven’t really been anxious, just go-go-going and not really knowing where I’m going to wind up. But is that necessarily a bad thing?
