Choppy: Rough, with short, tumultuous waves; as, a choppy sea.
Very choppy meditation this morning. When sending metta to DaeJa, brief periods of calm and peace arose, and it was quiet enough that impermanence could be seen with insight. But then it would start raging again. Thoughts and emotions seething with anger & resentment. Mindful of those sensations in the body, esp. in the arms. Unpleasant. The pleasant passes; it's unreliable. The painful passes, too, but not fast enough. :-) Even the knowing arises and passes away; sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. Waves.
