I happen to totally agree with you. I have avoided bringing some people into our enviroment specifically because they may not be seen should they falter as they gain footing. I totally believe in watching what is going on around me, although I have faltered on occasions as well.
I have watched many paddles but not all, as groups pod off and no one looks behind and just keeps going. I do hope we change our awareness behavior and become better.
Thanks for articulating this so well.
