Sometimes though, I'd like to run naked through the prickly pears and let the thorns peal off this skin and reveal whatever is underneath. Snakes get cranky when they shed their skin, but it seems that human beings must bleed to shed theirs. I wonder when we as a species lost the ability to change without pain? It doesn't seem like a very good adaptation.
Happy Cactus Monday Cactuteers-remember to miss the thorns if you can!
