  1. Is this about wearing protection? Ha,ha Colleen, hope you don’t mind. Sometimes I just can’t resist!


  2. So the most important thing is to wear the armor!

    What a great predicament! I always had my guard up – until I began to really live. (love, love, love the doodles!)


    • 🙂 Thank you Stacey. I know that fear keeps some armor up. Or past pains. Or other reasons. But what do we miss when we wear it? And when we don’t wear it, what scars do we amass? And how well do we bare/bear them? So many questions! 🙂

    Yes, my buddy Colleen. Take it knowingly or skip it knowingly. Fear is such a factor in the decision! And the costume doesn’t have to be the same every day.

  5. Take a chance! No-one can go through life unscathed. Sometimes, a little rain must fall…

    i tend to go into the world without weapons and sometimes it hurts. it’s worth it though, for the times when i feel the joys.

    I think I’m missing something—lots of things because I have some hefty armor.


    • Just some things….it seems from your recent posts you have been gaining many things. 🙂 (By the way, did you turn comments off? Just in case you didn’t, I can’t comment and I don’t want you think I’m not, I can’t, but don’t know why.)

    The eternal dilemma. Love this, CM. ♥♥

    I am open to all the possibilities, without my armor. This is the way I face each day, hoping and believing I will get more butterflies and love, this was so perfect for me, Colleen. I think you may don your protective devices but I don’t see you using armor!


    • Thank you Robin. I have to admit I have used armor. Less so now. But I had times in life where I had armor galore. But I gradually shed it. I don’t know that I have left it all behind, I’m sure if I needed it I would grab it again. But I hope not.

    Well stated with the perfect images to go with. Personally, I love the heart and butterfly with sword action. Still, with the arrow…a reminder it is a risk. I think worth it to go without the armor more often than not. 🙂


  12. I have armor. When some parts are unarmored, they are almost always pierced. Sometimes it is good, most often it leaves me vulnerable. I welcome it though, it is a lesson waiting to be taught.


  13. So true Colleen 😀
