  2. I think these days with so many impositions on our energy that we cannot control it is necessary to install strong boundaries and whatever we must do to protect ourselves is fine.

  3. Indeed. Reminds me of my recent divorce and the constant ringing and messaging. Yet your poem also reminds me that we have a choice in how we handle our phone. Mine is always on silent, unless there is a specific call I am expecting. A lovely poem, Elle, and thanks for the Adele this evening, also lovely. β€οΈπŸ€—πŸ™πŸ₯°

      1. Indeed and agreed about choice. You’re most welcome, dear Elle. Always. Ah, yes, I too love Adele’s voice, and because of your post last night, I am listening to her lovely voice right now. Beauiful. β€πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—βœ¨πŸ™
