I've been thinking about posture lately. Not the "sit up straight young lady or you'll get a hump in your back" kind of posture but the metaphorical posture we take with others, whether it be intellectual, emotional and yes, sometimes physical.
Is this a hard-wired homosapien trait or the remnants of a caste system we as a nation claim to abhor? This oneupsmanship seems to me an exhausting way to live.
This is what I want...to be fully present with others in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Is that too much to ask?
