These past nine months have been a ride. I think it’s what my parents would call an E-ticket, the kind of ride you wait in long lines for and surrender tremendous value in order to experience. As I’ve tried to patiently work with this body that, at times, seems bent on deterioration, I’ve grappled with some startling realities and examined some long-held beliefs. I’ve swallowed my fair share of judgment, waded through many a difficult conversation and seen glimpses of divinity in some unexpected places. I’m still holding on for dear life but I think I might be ready to articulate a few of the things I’ve been noticing along the way.
Want to ride with me?
