It’s been four full months since the surgery. After years of worsening and weakening decline, today, I know the surgery fixed what was crippling me.
I’m out back, behind the house, down its’ steep slope it sets on, cutting back bramble and vines that are choking out the trees. It’s not dainty work but I haven’t even broken a sweat after climbing and chopping and rolling brush down the hill.
I haven’t been this physically strong in a very long time.
So, I’m feeling pretty grateful and a little bit like I’m a bad ass rocking the dirt, again.
It doesn’t hurt that it’s a gorgeous day here in North Portland.
Tonight, it’s a concert. I was invited to see @2CELLOS
And if you never heard or seen these two Croatian guys on the webs, you should check it out.
I like being out of my head like this.
