Being buffered ends

by Kate Hammer, commercial storyteller

In just a single day and with no hint of what’s to come, a lifetime of being buffered ends. Not that she cocooned me. But losing Mom, I feel exposed, as if skinless. Fundamentally, I both felt and was protected within her love. I miss that shield. And until now, I hadn’t realised it existed. The new exposure overwhelms me.
