I have been mostly staying quiet during this journey, sleeping lots and lots, going deep into meditation on my mat, staring at the pine trees behind my house, listening to the ringed doves sing on the porch, and reading Mary Oliver’s poems. The quiet brings me peace and healing. I have also been binge watching some fascinating reality shows that ease me gently out of my body for reprieve. I still have a long road ahead of me and at times I am really scared. some days go better than others, but I have accomplished things I never thought I could live through. (MRI’s for one!) I am so grateful to the people who have sent love, flowers, cards, candles, food and prayers.
