Maybe it's just a parent thing, then. Even if you've never felt it, surely you must have seen it in a movie...etc. When the 5-year old disappears suddenly in the park, or a big store, and the most gut-wrenching panic overtakes you, thinking every horrific thing possible has happened and you are never going to see them alive again, etc., etc., etc. Then...they appear, and are "okay" - in the sense of this example, not kidnapped or dead. As a mom... you are flooded with relief followed **immediately** by a very specific sort of anger - the "don't you EVER do that again or I'll kill you!" - kind.

That's what I meant. The happiness/relief and anger at being so terrified - albeit contradictory - do coexist in that moment. Not rational or that the child (not understanding the effects of their actions on others yet) or you (sorta the same but for more complex, adult reasons, plus circumstances like you said) could have actually *avoided* it, but it's a pure emotional outburst of what we/I wished could have not logic there.

And no, I never/don't think of you as a child in relation to me...just as someone who was suffering and in need at that time and in need of help/caring by others who are at least more stable/strong/okay.

Of course, you weren't okay. By that I meant, like with the small child terror - okay = not dead or comatose. I hope that makes sense.

Dr. Bob's pics - just guessing - look like colleagues/faculty, etc., just by age, backgrounds of photos, etc. But I wouldn't know.

He really should post something. We need Poet to cyber-slap the heck out of him, methinks :-)
