There are events of the past, we thought we had filed, that we had definitively put aside in the memory shed, but every once in a while, due to some inevitable fatality, they come back together, reminding us how fragile and exposed we are. A real dark cloud that destabilizes us. But also a blessing, reminding us that we are never really safe, that we need to reactivate to face. There’s always something that can break in from the outside and summon us to deal with ourselves.
Today is one of those days.
