Thank you, Kay. This was one of those “shields up” kinda stories. I actually expected a bit of backlash (and hey, it’s never too late, right?) but I guess it didn’t hit the notes I was afraid it would hit. Sometimes we do things that aren’t exactly in character for us but then again some things are so far outside of “normal” that we don’t have the toolkit to deal with them at all. I’m kinda still living in that space. Thank you for reading and commenting. It’s the kind of juice I need to get back to writing (I’ve been on a couple week hiatus and it’s a struggle….).
