Today we left the safety of our urban environs for a country locale. After lunch and shopping we scampered back to a more urban area. While in the country Natalie and I didn't touch, kiss, hold hands, or say I love you at all, but we were watched with open hostility by many around us. I have not been that uncomfortable in a long time. We kept asking ourselves was it like this before and we just didn't notice? Or is this new? I don't know the answer, but it made me afraid.
