The crazy woman who used to run roughshod over life has been released, for the most part. Her kick has lessened and is nearly gone.
There is a new lady in town. She is firm, sure, and methodical. Very observant, she watches … she listens … she asks questions. The answers she receives are not only words (or lack of them) but it is the body language, the energy output, the nervous delays and twitches. She notices over-confidence, she pays attention to unnatural familiarity, she takes note of boundaries ignored and lines crossed.
Naivety has taken a hike, or rather, has been thrown out of the house.
These days ~ these events ~ will be reckoned with in due course. Patience is key, and the time is near.
