The thing that we all know about but never really say...

You know: that thing?

?

They’ve come to take our pain away...
So what are we left with?
Like children, we awaken to understand life in our new
body. It’s sort of the same... but we can feel all the hard
work it’s doing, repairing this tear and that.

Like a question we were born to phrase
But never gave ourselves full leave to answer...
Our bodies have a funny
way of making us listen-even when we don’t want to!!

INSIDE OUT---> we come to know ourselves. And
that, my friends, takes patience... lots and lots and lots
of patients.

In conversation with my surgeon...
(I’ve been through a whole bunch of
operations but never have I enjoyed
such an open style of communication.)
My body has its tales to tell... but softly in
the curves and contours: it masks the truths
that only subtle scalpels can reveal.
There is a level of trust... and like a guide: my surgeon turned my
insides out and then back in again. It is a journey all but forgotten in
all the ways we have learned to ‘recover’ ourselves and ‘heal.’

Me? Mmm... not bad... I had day surgery on Tuesday
and it went
well...
sort of.
