Together they may often suggest something which is missing, upon which it will be fruitful to focus attention.

In the absence of such intentional looking for them we may not recognize that they are missing. We may not recognize that we are lacking --- because we do not make such periodic searches for what might be missing in tragic ways. If there are no secure role models who have demonstrated how to deal with what is absent---doing so in mature integrative ways---it is difficult to deal with the risks of trying to deal with what powerful people may be embarrassed by and uncomfortable with. It may be forbidden to try to deal with the risks of revealing what is lacking. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
