Snow-building as meditation

Another post from the Dept. of Post-Collapse Studies.

The icicle doesn’t fall far from the eave.*

Ankle Speaks

Last night Ankle swelled up and became very tender.

This morning, Ankle spoke.

“You aren’t listening to me!” said Ankle. “I need to heal, and you are making me worse by running hither and thither, acting as though the pain doesn’t bother you!”

“But..”

“I need to heal,” Ankle insisted. “So you need to rest. Empty your calendar!!”

“What??!!??”

“Now that you’re finally paying attention, I’ll say it again,” Ankle said, a bit more quietly. “Clear your schedule. Heal.”

Sigh.

Ankle is right.

I spent today with my foot up, rearranging my schedule so that I’ll have time to rest, to listen carefully to Ankle, and respond appropriately. So you may not be seeing much of me.

I am still able to blog, however.
