Hey Linda! Someone wrote a book ... it was all the rage some years back ... It was all about natural instincts and how much weight we ought to afford them in protecting ourselves. I wish I could remember what it was called. I read it at the time .... Geez... everyone says your hearing is the first to go... I'm going with memory being the first! ETA: BAM! I remembered ... The Gift of Fear ... Gavin Becker. Don't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, though.
