Re: Article: Symbols, Metaphors, Change by "The Mirror"

Jo, to a large degree I agree with you--it takes uke to be holding a weapon for me to percieve myself as actually being attacked. Even with a committed shomenuchi that I know will land if I don't move, on most levels I'm not feeling threatened by my partner and my issues have more to with timing/energy/movement than with percieved threat.
Thanks to all for comments to date; you are all giving me more things to think about too....
