"I want to touch you again."

Here. I don't need to blog today. catvalente said much better things than I ever would.

You could go read them.

This strikes me really deeply. A lot of my programming tells me that the most dangerous thing I can do is want things, and that admitting to wanting them is tantamount to asking somebody to take them away from me.

So I've learned to not get attached.

It's a survival skill and a coping mechanism, and it works very well. I can navigate with very little loss of competence through exigencies that wreck a lot of other people. I'm good in a disaster. 

But you know? There's a cost for that.
