Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Lessons From an Oak Tree

on September 19, 2021

Exercising  knee
Of my new knee replacement 
I ponder future

Oak tree's crimson leaves
Introduce a new topic
Revolving goodness

Leaves come and flourish
Green replaced by bright crimson
Then leaf piles for play

My aging knee gone
Temporarily dormant
Will be good as new

    Wishing you well with your new knee ~ everyone I know that has had replacement have been very happy with it, but the rehab was not too fun. Torn my ACL twenty five years ago, and have been fortunate it has been stable and I keep it strong… but one day this too will likely be my future 🙂 You can tell me the do’s and don’t’s 🙂 Cheers and be well, Ina!

      Thanks for your good wishes, Dalo. Yes, I am glad I had the surgery and am almost finished with the necessary physical therapy. Everything has gone well. I’m glad your torn ACL is holding up. For me when the pain in my knee got worse than any imagined pain from surgery i went with surgery. I would do it again.
