After years of meditation  suppressing emotion for professional and social reasons, I find it extremely difficult to evoke emotions on cue. I’m impressed when I’m reading something that causes my emotions to swell up.  It’s unexpected and sudden. Now, when I try to evoke some emotions on my own, I’m stymied.  Looking in the mirror doesn’t help. (My most memorable emotions have no relation to the face I see in the mirror. 😉  Memories don’t help. I’m “being here now.” Remembering the past is like going through an album of old photos or watching ancient home movies flicker. Pleasant or interesting, but no emotions. I do want to be able to evoke emotions in my readers, so this is an important skill for me to learn.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.
