My avatar is a hornet. It reminds me that the feelings of anger/fear/anxiety that I had/have are not inappropriate or wrong. They are like the instinctive response of a hornet who's nest has been disturbed. I am not the thing disturbing the nest that needs to be driven off. I am the nest that needs to be protected and nurtured. My feelings are part of that process. I don't need to react by destroying my own nest! But if someone comes around and messes with my nest/safety, lookout because I'm not a little boy anymore - now I've got the strength to keep my self and family safe and protected.

This image occurred to me when I read about a solution that someone had to the problem of a hornet's nest near the backdoor on the day he was planning a big gathering at his house. Instead of destroying the nest (and likely getting stung in the process), he put up a sheet of clear plastic. The hornets could see what was going on as people walked by, but they weren't bothered because they "knew" the people on the other side were not threatening them. So instead of punishing the hornets for reacting appropriately to a threat, he respected their response and removed the threat. That was a new and powerful perspective for me :-)

My avatar is a picture of me taken in 2nd grade by my cub scout den mother, who also was a photographer. I think I was 7 years old.

Hey Guys,

After 9 months here I have chosen to change my avatar and my mode of transportation. No longer will I roam the desert on my trusty camel. But now I will soar my way to happy destiny thur the great blue skies. I live not far from Edwards Air Force base.
The starting point for the stealth fighter and bomber. And western landing site for the shuttle.
As we grow we always need to update things in our lives.

Mike
