After almost a year of absence from Facebook, Twitter, blogging and even writing, I can feel the mojo swooping in on me, and it feels good, very good.
Who knows what has been going on this past year? Certainly not me. I can’t tell if it was some sort of healing or simply a cocooning, but finally the heavy fog has lifted but I’m no longer afraid to sit down and write. My laptop has ceased to be the enemy.
I swear it used to stare at me…
Perhaps it has something to do with finally having a total knee replacement after at least five years of pain, perhaps an odd thing to motivate one. However, having a knee that was bone-on-bone for years took me to a level of disability over time that was difficult for me to recognize. A trip to the grocery store would require painkillers afterwards. I became nearly immobile with regards to pleasurable movement, like casual strolls down quaint country main streets or even a glitzy place like Vegas. I think it made me feel old.
Now I have a bionic knee and I’m feeling strong and much younger. Frankly, I’m feeling a bit invincible – a great mindset for mojo. Every morning, two months after the surgery, I’m surging with energy and joy in living.
My advice to anyone considering a procedure that will restore your mobility would be to go for it. Of course, I have a gnarly scar, but that’s a minor issue. I’m trying to think of some exciting story to tell about it (more glamorous than the truth) but the very straight nature of the scar precludes adventures like shark bite! I’ve startled and horrified most of my family by running tattoo designs by them as a means of elevating the Frankenstein-like marking into a gorgeous decoration.
Don’t tell them, but I’m a little frightened of the needle!
Anyway, I look forward to writing and blogging again. Stay tuned for the next post because I have a bit of an announcement to make.
