I hope so.

And I don't discount the idea that my concern about therapy might be affecting how I feel under the surface.

He's been terrific about being present the last two sessions. The first session he seemed a bit stiff and maybe angry. Still, angry is emotionally present.

But yesterday was almost playful. I think we needed that after all the angst. I asked him if we could trade places for a few minutes so I could see his view out the window. I asked him what various things were, and he answered those he knew. It was a beautiful grey misty drizzly day. I love those. That led the conversation around to seas and mountains and feeling small against the backdrop of the world. How seldom there's a chance to feel that way in New Orleans. He gave me some practical advice about how to thwart social huggers politely, including a demonstration. We talked of my intense fear of termite swarms after being caught in one. I think we really needed a not particularly personal bonding session.

There are so very many things he's really good at.
