oral tradition


I know that defeat is a great master. But I don't want to learn anything today.

(from Paulo Coelho)

Did I say "tradition"? I meant surgery. Today.

Light your candles. Do the naked healing dance. Think of me at 10:00.

On one hand, I am sure everything will be fine. On the other...I am really not looking forward to this experience.

I'll keep you posted.


UPDATE: I am home. Just took some big whoppin' pain meds and I hope they kick in before the local wears off. Other than the fact that I am minus some teeth and a lot of money and that my eyelid is numb, all is well. Thanks for all your good wishes.

Love you. Mean it.

Oh my baby! I wish I could be there with you.

Wish Mom and I were both there with you. I would love to make you laugh and see how funny your numb face looks! Hey! What are sisters for? Really, I hope the pain meds work without any ill effects and you are well and healthy really soon. Love you. Mean it, too.

Sorry I am just reading this now - we're on vacation and I'm away from my computer most of the time. Sending a back log of light and love!

I was just dropping in to wish you and yours the happiest Independence Day. May your day be full! May you enjoy laughter shared with family, great food shared with friends, fireworks to make you gasp, a lump in your throat at the anthem, and a full and grateful heart at all we have been given. Happy Fourth of July, my friend!

Well, carp, I was out of town with limited 'putter access and missed this. Now I get why you were grateful for the pain meds in your Sunday list. Still praying your healing is rapid and the meds do their job well. Also sending a little extra energy for the technicians to build whatever appliances for maximum comfort, usability and, of course, gorgeous looks.
