Jungle Mode

Daily Draw: Da Vinci Tarot ~ 8 of Swords/Air

Dimmi: What bypasses the limitations surrounding you?

My mind goes straight to the #MeToo movement. Had to look it up to get the name right. Not because I'm not supportive, but because that all is going on in a part of the time suck web where I don't go. And I never had an employer with whom I had to give to get.

But this card reminds me I am a hugger. I had two bosses who were huggers. I would have know the difference if it had motives behind it but I couldn't and wouldn't do it today. I had one boss who hated to be touched at all. The day his twins were born I moved in to hug and he about went through the wall getting away from me. Oops.

All that said to say under our modern layer of civility we still think in jungle mode. The laws won't change that, but carrying a Glock might.

  1. It took me a long time to become a hugger or even a shoulder patter. Trauma can do strange things to the mind.

  3. In am a hugger. Don't know how it started or when, and it has become even more pronouced since my trauma event. I hugged so many out of gratitude that it is as natural as breathing. On the gun issue, I don't think that I will every carry, zombies be damned.
