enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

On the other side of it......

On the other side of my surgery and working on healing and resting. "Cancer" is an emotionally charged word.... it cuts a swath through all kinds of petty bullshit and bureaucracy .... except when it doesn't!! So far, I  am quite amazed at what a powerful  semiotic it is.

But all this is for future blog posts as I am able to spend more time at a keyboard .....

For now, I am grateful for the gifts of a  loving partner,  a loving son, a loving family; supportive and nurturing friends, and amazing ( and I mean freakin' amazing) students. My history does not dispose me to turn my care over to others.....but my experiences over the past few weeks have allowed me  to trust all of these folks to carry me. And carry me, they most certainly have. Yielding is my greatest challenge and my deepest well. I continue to learn. There is much to learn.
