Since I haven't been able to spend time in my studio
I thought I'd share a journal page that I've been working on
for a couple of weeks.
This is for an online class with Juliana Coles--Field Notes, a book of reminders.
Juliana had asked me a couple of times to continue to work on the page,
and take it further.
Going outside (for the assignment) was out of the question.
There is enough right in front of you, to teach you something.
My days are/were filled with medication, exercises, Dr. appts., PT appts.,
For the first 2 weeks, I needed to use a walker.
One day my eyes welled with tears, my thoughts were
swirling with the idea that with the walker I can walk, I am liberated,
without the walker, I can't walk, I am humbled.
The checkerboard represents taking things one day at a time.
We can't rush healing. It happens when it's ready on its own schedule.
It was good to journal my feelings of this experience.
I drew my self portrait on the prescription info sheet,
the med bottle on an an exercise sheet from PT.
I see the Dr. on Tues, hoping he will let me drive and go back to work on Wed.
The walker is in the basement (!), using a crutch now.
Off all meds!
Things are moving along nicely.
Thank you for your prayers and thoughts,
and thank you so much for visiting!
