Life Altered

Morning light but a trickle
mind switches into gear,
body resisting response,
ambition thwarted by illness,
the usual game – pray this day
will embrace gently, and
bring a gift of healing.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

    1. Thanks Jazz. Ric is doing very well. Has lost 35 lbs, more energetic. I continue to drag along – not sure things much will improve as the weather worsen. Such is life. I’ll sure be thinking of you in Texas!
