Back In Town
First, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of your well wishes in my previous entry. They mean the world to me!
I was out of town for a few days visiting Olivia, my good friend with RSD. We had an absolute blast! She is a joy to be around, and I miss her so much when we have to part ways for a bit. One day, we walked, hmmmm 3 blocks maybe, to the bookstore and back, and that did us both in for the next day. We didn't leave the house at all to recover. Pathetic? Maybe. Smart? Absolutely! I was proud of us for fighting the urges to push through the pain and go outside exploring on a gorgeous spring day. It's never an easy decision. Both of us are high-energy, explorer types. We love to go out and live in the moment, going where the wind takes us to experience new and magnificent things. When we aren't doing this, our high-energy turns into restlessness, which can turn into anger for the both of us. When we are together, that anger abates, and we spend our time talking, laughing, loving... She is simply a joy to be around, and I wish I could share her with all of you. Publishing her poems on my blog is my small attempt at doing so.
