Do 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.
