Hockey elbows

imageDo you have causes that provoke your engagement more than others?  How do you describe that alertness that comes when people you love or issues you care deeply about are threatened?

I have one friend who says she feels her “hockey elbows” come out, another who says she becomes a mama bear.  I’m not sure how I would describe myself in those situations.  I know I’ve said at least once that I feel my cape unfurl. I just know I am aware when it happens and become wide awake to important work to do.

It happened to me today.
