Although McDonald may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), she is actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, she is much more subjective and biased in her attitudes than her fair-minded, reasonable demeanor may imply.
Audra has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings.

She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles.

Audra McDonald also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
