Yes, “to care” is to get open to the world, but a world to which one’s self has a part to play as well. There is a piece by the Iranian poet, Saadi Shirazi, about a patient and his friend who sat at his bedside to take care of him and cries all night over his body. In the morning, the patient recovered, but found the friend's body cold beside the bed. Saadi, who is a true advocate of care, is just trying to remind us that taking care also includes taking care of one’s self. So, these days, if you decided to entangle TAing with “care”, do not forget to visit yourself from time to time, as well.
