Thalia took a swig of water and wiped her mouth with the sleeve of her 3mm sweatshirt. “It’s been quite a week!” “Monday was filled with anticipation,” said Calliope. “Tuesday — an effort to be observant of our experience,” said Urania. “Wednesday was filled with euphoria. We made it to the other side of chemo and surgery!” Thalia twirled.
You’re HUGE! Your story would be great for many people ❤️
Amen to harnessing the beauty that comes from chaos ... but not too soon, right? No one knows better than you that these things take time, sometimes lots and lots and lots of time. Take every hour (day, week, month) you need. For what you're moving through, you've earned it and deserve it. Watching you pay attention to what you yourself need (including time) and then watching you give this to yourself--this, too, is something (big) that will be of use to others, including me. Blessings to you every step of the way, Gail--it's been a week for sure.
You know what makes for a good Friday? Hanging out with emotionally smart, kind, and creative people. Not unlike tumbling down the rabbit hole like Alice. Without the hallucinagens. From my side bar emails with Gail, as well as here on 3mm, I've come to see her sense of humor, genuineness, kindness, and smarts. Did I forget courage? I'll compare the process Gail has set about to laying down bottles of a deep burgundy, complex cabernet to age toward perfection! How long does a great cabernet take? A lot of science, but tastings tend to play an important role. Like others (I'm speculating but with a degree of confidence) I eagerly await the tastings. The vintner holds all the cards. Swirl before tasting! Oh, that's Tal's specialty...

Regardless, it's Friday, and while that's more of a symbolic thing for some of us retired folk, it's still a thing. Contemplation is good. ䷓ <== (I typed "contemplation" into my Mac's character viewer [because it also does emojis] and it came up with "the hexagram for contemplation" two solid lines over four dashed lines... okay fine)
