I have good days and bad. But L and I did get those two big sock rugs done. It amazes me what a well oiled machine we are making TWO 7'x10' rugs in four mornings. We don't even have to talk, I know what she's doing, she knows what I'm doing, and before long this rug begins to appear, tightly woven, straight edges and all.
It's very rewarding.
I have decided that we all have some inherent qualities for dealing with pain.
It's kind of like having a baby. You forget it. What's that old joke, about if you didn't forget it, you wouldn't ever do it again. Well, you do. You talk about it, but it loses its punch. Pain just isn't the same in retrospect.
Which is why, I've decided, that one day I can be wiped out, on the couch, thinking about how far away is the nearest bridge...............and the next day I'm back weaving and dreaming about things I want to do.
Pain knocks me down, but it doesn't own me. The minute pain backs off, I am on my feet again, like a worn out, punch drunk, old fighter, not ready to leave the ring.
I am adamant.
It doesn't own me.
It is HH, the headache, the monster, but it is not me.
It is NOT who I am.
Like yesterday, I made a zucchini chocolate cake.....to die for, I might add. I went to the library.
I rode through the countryside at dusk, and breathed in the smell of fresh cut fields.
Some days, it's SAE, my friend's advice, Scrap All Expectations.
But still, this headache does not own me.
Every day, I count my blessings. My family, my friends, Sweet Boy Roy. The people I love, the people who love me.
My stamina. My determination. My overall health. My studio. The incredible life I have lived.
The life I intend to live. My dreams.
Not now. Not ever.
You can stalk me daily, you can nag at me, beat on me, knock me down occasionally.
But you do not own me. I am more than YOU.
Get over it.
