I’m back in DC.
And as I was practicing yoga this morning I realized how tense I am about it. Because I still characterize DC by the difficulties that apexed in 2007. Intellectually, I know that I am no longer demoralized and confused, the splintered person of yesteryears is gone. She has been replaced by a more resourceful, capable, and confident me.
But against the backdrop of our last great battle, I see Demoralized and Confused more vividly. She lurks and lurches, stealthily chasing the shadows.
Fortunately past the dense fog of outdated and irrelevant fears, I sense a calmness that can burn through the hazy film of past distractions.
