If we are not careful we can build a carapace around ourselves which only hardens with age. We've all been burned by life in one way or another and it can be tempting to let that scar tissue be our armor against further offenses. However I feel that reopening ourselves again might be the right thing to do even if it can feel dangerous and reckless.

I will sometimes wake up from dreams that tempt me to enclose myself against the elements of life and then, when fully awake, will rethink my strategy. Maybe it is best to be as open as we once were before life got to us and taught to carry baggage which only saddled us with pain and hurt.

At least we can try.
