Little changes can sometimes have a big impact. Reclaiming one’s own personal territory can be an affirming act. So often in life we submit ground in all sorts of little ways. Each little piece may in and of itself not amount to very much but after a period of time those little bits can add up to a small country. Determining where compromise ends and surrender begins is a necessary and ongoing process. No one is an island, to be sure, but the boundaries between personal and public territory certainly require and warrant review and reassessment from time to time.
