Five foods- that was the prompt we were supposed to be writing about. And so I have done that, right here, right now. But the back-story bubbling beneath the surface is the wonder about the things that are brewing in me. I would most like to describe it as a quickening (which seems like an old-fashioned, spiritual word), with the potential for growth. How will I be changed by the diagnosis? What might come of the time I will be recuperating?
Already I feel a sense of gratitude and grace, and love. I am working on attentiveness.
These are the kind of things that serve as markers in one’s life. Right now I’m just watching the bubbling, waiting to see what all comes up to the surface.
