This is kind of a "p.s."

Dan Siegel talked this weekend about simultaneous age states being in different places of trust and arousal. Meaning, your little girl could act out but your adult self could feel perfectly fine and be observing enough to wonder where the impulse to kick something was coming from.

I asked about some of the deep attachment feelings and longings that are reactivated in therapy and he talked about the implicit memory that is embedded in the right brain. Which, btw, is where our autobiographical narrative is stored. So if we are talking about our life, it makes sense that our need for safety and all those kinds of feelings are brought out with the stories. (of course I'm paraphrasing like crazy here.) AND, he talked about a rupture of our safe place and he used the example of being 40 and having your mom die. He asked us to imagine how disruptive it would be for a young parent to lose their safe place right at the time when they where trying to be one too.

I thought of you a lot this weekend. When I have more time, I'll post about his thoughts on mindfulness and journaling.

It has been great babbling with you as well. Don't disappear completely...
