I say Chapter One, because there will be many more pieces to this story, but this image is from the beginning of my husband’s journey back to walking again. I did this drawing of my husband before his quad tendon surgery on January 6 – I was sitting with him in the pre-op area before the operation. It calmed my nerves to have something like drawing to focus on.
The surgery went well and the tendon is back in place. Next, we focus on getting him back on his feet! I will be taking my little red plaid bag full of drawing pens and paper and poetry materials (I travel ready for any inspiration to strike!) as we go along and if I see anything interesting, well, I’ll see if I can’t record it somehow.
I’m so glad the surgery went well! One step at a time (hmmm. . .not sure if that’s a good platitude or not in this case). 🙂
Oh, it’s so wonderfully appropriate! I have used it myself several times ( the first inadvertently and the other times happily on purpose, making me laugh if no one else…). Thanks so much for your good wishes.
Isn’t it funny or fun, perhaps, when you find or say a phrase like that, and it makes you laugh because of the situation?
Yes, and I have wondered at the way these phrases just bubble up at the right time, I guess since you are thinking about the topic with all levels of your mind, and it can’t help but express itself in that same context! But it is still just something that makes you laugh, too, and that is good.
