I also commented to several “volunteer” helpers and much to my chagrin, “no big deal” was the replies I received.

I plan on attending several more Author Events in person this year and I sure hope there are NO roving gangs of thieving women.

The End, for now.

The protector / provider mentality is ingrained in men. It’s in our DNA and not always a bad thing. It’s when the protector’s shield cannot be lowered to accept love that it becomes a problem. Grunting now isn’t encouraged. Considering this point is.

Balance is the key to battle, business, and being loved.
