I Want to Stay Soft

Cotton Fields – Nov. 2013

In speaking of a man on the move, E.B. White says,

…he leaves something vital, it seems to me, and starts his new life, somewhat less encrusted, like a lobster that has shed its skin and is for a time soft and vulnerable.

I’d like to think I shed myself of few things when we moved and that in some ways I am softer. I don’t want to grow old and crusty again.
