I added a trigger warning to the subject line. I should have warned you in advance.
no apologies necessary.
viewer beware i always say.
no harm done.
it was just the familiarity of the phrases that threw me.
they have been roosting and rattling around in my head for decades and i dared not give them voice.
seeing those words laid out there like that was a bit of a shock.
whenever something cuts through my defenses it gives me reason to reflect, which is something i value.
so thank you for the challenge.
