Currie's Gratitude 16 June 2014

In the space between yes and no, there is a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; it’s the legroom for the lies you will tell yourself in the future.   [Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart]

I said YES to BEginning radiation treatments for my lung. Today is #1. Even though I already had one treatment on the small tumor in my brain, I find myself a little at loose ends and I feel like I am running to keep up with my thoughtsandfeelings and no matter how hard or fast I run, they are BEyond my grasping.

I said YES to calling my dad yesterday. I got to talk to him!! He called me back!! We talked just over 3 minutes, but I heard his laugh and I definitely felt his smile. I said “I love you” but I did NOT tell him I am scared. That I wanted to hear my dad’s voice and knew the only way that would happen would BE if I did something.

Shrug off the no’s – they are temporary. This is your world. In your world there is only yes.   [Jolene Stockman, Total Blueprint for World Domination]

Yes…. YES. YES!!!

I love you, Currie

Oh, Currie. So much love to you! Your art is lovely, as always. You also got me thinking about how loose ends sometimes make beautiful impressions, too, just ones that we can't control as easily. This is a gift, too. Big big hugs. Hugs. hugs.
