Surgery Recovery Moving Quickly, slowly Reverting to Right Hand.
Just a quick entry to let everyone know what ws done, and still needs to be done.
Stitches came off 2 weeks after Surgery and a new Custom-molded, (I’d rather have had a Cast than a Splint. (I’ll say more later; but can’t Complete this, rt now.
Here are some photos, though: I’l label them later;)
Things happen5, which completely send us on a tailspin–only to hope and pray we don’t land without our Parachute open.
Such is the case here: Two (2) weeks ago, an unfortunate fall has left my right hand incapacitated at the wrist.
At a gas station, I tripped on a Pothole, near the pump, fell landing full on, straight on my right wrist. I couldn’t even get up.
Calls for Help, brought a Driver and a Policeman, who–seeing how bad my wrist looked–Called an Ambulance, which took me to Lancaster Regional Medical. A temporary cast was applied.
Surgery is tomorrow morning! Two plates will be inserted bypassing the wrist to connect right hand to the forearm.
My piano playing days are over!
I can’t describe how it felt…, the realization I’ll never play it again, like before!😩😩😩✔️
A 2.5-hr-long Surgical procedure followed by upteen PT Sessions, will partiaĺly restore range of motion.
Right now, it’s really hard doing it all using my Non-Dominant hand.
Threrefore, effective immediately, both blogs, (this one, and Gaea’s Midwife), are on Hiatus.
Where has Summer Gone? (It Didn’t Exist for me, at all–I Faced so many Challenges…)
Now, Tired, Weary, Somewhat Cynnical, Still facing Huge Challenges,
Though still Flumoxed on How I’ll Overcome them, I Know I WILL;
Unsure where I found this Photo below, but am always Moved and Encouraged by the Story it represents❤
It’s based on an Allegory, I’ll Paraphrase here:
Someone, who’d gone through excessive Travails, was shocked to see only one set of footsteps in the sand. Upon questioning Jesus about it, asking Him “Why hast thou abandoned me, at the worst of my times?” Jesus lovingly replied “It was at those times that I was carrying you…”
Footsteps in the Sand ❤
I Wrote the Following this Morning, during Breakfast, and Hope it is of Benefit to Others, as Well as to my Self.
May I have the Presence of Mind: Not to be Tricked, by People, Companies, Anything;
May I have the Astuteness: To always Ensure All Questions are answered, Before making a Decision;
May I Remain Connected to my Higher Self, my Intuition: and Always Listen to MySelf;
May My Heart Remain Calm: When faced with Setbacks;
May my ego move out of the way: When dealing with Outsourced Customer/Tech Services;
May I REMEMBER: EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE are MY BROTHERS & SISTERS IN SPIRIT;
While leafing through an old Notebook–filled with Poetry, Insights, Essays, etc–I came Across this very short, May 20, 2004 Entry of a Dream Lesson I’d woken-up with, in my head. Here it is:
“To whom do you offer assistance?” Was the question posed by the Traveler;
“To Everyone, according to Their needs,” was the reply given.

Since my Knowings of Life, give me an Understanding that: “Coincidences are God’s way of pointing us into a certain action, or direction,” I tend to Follow the .
I was actually looking for a Poem I wished to Post, and ran straight into this Dream, instead. It would be Nice if whoever this Entry Speaks to, or be Useful for, in some ways, to let us know, and see where it takes us.
Have a Lovely Day, filled with the Principles of the Sanskrit word: “Namastè” ma89🌸
Hi, Just to Share this Most Wonderful Conversation, (Interview), between (the Mystic) Andrew Harvey, and his Interviewer.
(Alert: This Video is to be Sipped, in Slow Doses, not Gulped in one go). One thing I’ve been Learning, of late, has been to “sloooow dooooowwwnn,” (something we, Westerners tend to forget, ignore, consider “laziness!” May I humbly recommend you all “Think again!”
I’d never heard of this guy, before tonight, (and at first found everything I could, wrong with him, and his appearance), yet, continuing to *Listen* to what he had to say, not what he looked like, I was able to overcome that barrier, and actually Learn, and Question my Own Values–something I’ve been doing a lot of lately–put them aside, and Learn from what he had to say.
I highly recommend this Video; this is Why I’m entering it here.
The Author of this Entry is SO Spot-On, I wanted to “Like It” about 100 times 😉 but there was no “Like” buttom, so on *His Behalf* I’m reblogging it, just so anyone, Whose Life-Path has/IsWill be Similar, may Pass It On, and Please, when Liking It, leave a Comment for His Entry, Not Me.
Interestingly, just this afternoon, while listening to the excellent Aussie Podcast: “Big Ideas,” dated Tue, Apr 28, 2015, titled: “The Stigma of Poverty,” detailed quite well the Socio-Economic, and Health Loss Tolls Poverty “slags” onto those classified “Poor.” As I Understood it, the Speaker said in no uncertain terms, Poverty is an Assault on One’s Very Core of Being and a Violation of Human Rights, which must be addressed.
May I humbly Highly Recommend The Reader access the “Big Ideas” Podcast, all of which are quite good. 😉
