Back Away from Snap Judgments
Arrrgh, voir dire. Given the tinnitus, when I listen, do I hear? Given my migraines, when I look, do I see? Given my emotions, when I hurt, do my feelings cause the pain? All too often, I get migraines or myofascial spasms when I feel trapped. Yesterday's civic exercise in jury duty voir dire was a classic in feeling trapped. Today is not so bad. The illusion of having control lessens my pain.
