Context

Sometimes the universe delivers to your heart just what you need. Today it came in the form of this post from Grady doctor. I have not been to see a doctor in years. Ironically, when I started this blog back in June 2008, it was to push myself to begin taking better care of me. I dipped my toe in the water and then sat on the shore, never following through, at least not in the medical sense. This morning, I pulled up a chair and set down my coffee and had a good long visit over at Reflections of a Grady Doctor. She is a bedrock good soul, such a good mother, friend, doctor, wife, human being. You can just tell. She cares about her patients, which somehow makes me feel as if she cares about me. I can't explain it. Or, more truthfully, I choose not to. But my throat is full and it is not from sadness. It is from sheer wonder at the way this works. Thank you feels like a cliche, but it is what I can do. Thank you, especially because of them.

  6. In my best, least mind or ego driven moments, I know it all comes down to love, every single thing. It is my guide, the shore toward which I sail. Not always on course, but, I hope, aware when I have drifted. I always find love here in your photos, in your words. xo
