Pain is an interesting phenomenon. At least with me. The past five weeks or more I have been battling with a couple of fractured ribs and a fractured vertebrae. They have won; every day, every consuming moment of that day. Thankfully pain has receded. I am now able to sleep through the night, and while awake, sit at the computer without pain. But the former pain crushed hope, and belief, and others. There was no desire to commumicate; only survive. Alone, even helpers, welcome and generous as they might be, were in an outside world. Needs were shared; but not feelings or thoughts. Which brings me to my point in all this. Sorry to those loyal or adventurous readers of this blog for not posting any written work . I am beginning to write as you can see...and think...beyond the demanding selfish embrace of pain. More sunlight, I promise to you, tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow. More "tales told by an idiot" to follow.
