Time

It feels like years and years since I’ve posted here. Going through grueling physical recovery from two surgeries has changed me on a molecular level. It’s been a flurry of progressions with an equal amount of regressions. What I’ve learned is if I don’t take the time I need to fully heal, maybe this would have been all for nothing. My goal is to return to writing by the end of this year, or early next year. My brain is ready to go, yet my body still says no. I keep this photo handy every time I berate myself for not showing up. “They” say that time heals all wounds, but I’ve come to realize that it’s what you do with that time that evokes positive change and enlightenment – genuine growth.

  1. I’m so glad to see you back here. You are truly remarkable!! I’ve been thinking of you lots over the past few months, as every time I see Glenn Close in the media I think of you!!! :))))

    While I can’t wait for you to start writing again, I really can force myself to wait as I want you to *take your time* as much as your brain wants to do it. Yes, take all the time you need to fully heal.

    happy Thanksgiving, my dear!!!
    XO,
