Neighbor, LS, newly retired, is making her home a haven; spends days...now years collecting and correcting the aura. My former husband is caught in a trap of caring for his ever swelling number of cats, swallowing his life. My sister is obsessed with maintaining her ornament status-goes shopping everyday to gather her next "look". My son lives alone and works unilaterally on computers. He never leaves his house, his town, like he's chained to it. My point is that we fall into routines that are confining. Without reexamining and adjusting our energies, our lives become small and stuck.
