I was living life the other day and I felt acutely the places where I come up against myself. The place where I am present, living, fully aware of life and all its magic and then something comes along that scares me, shuts me down and I can feel the cloak of indifference take over. It was a physical act. It was real. It happened in my body.

It was so dramatic when it happened, that I was changed by the experience. I began to think of other times when I felt the same.

What happens in life to shut me down, turn me off?
