Touched -

I'm in a sensory awareness group.  We meet through conference calls, email check-ins, and in-person at times.  Tonight I read the "report" of a vet.  I hadn't thought of all that is involved with Veteran's Day for a vet, the apprehension beforehand perhaps, the difficulty with reconciling all that is involved in their time in service.

She articulates it well.

I think of struggle and recognizing and letting go.  How armored are we?  How armored am I?  At times, I feel like an armadillo, and other times, like a porcupine, and other times, soft as anemone flesh, and yet, anemones have tentacles.  How do we balance our need to open, reach, and defend?
