Checking in -

Today has been a bit of a rough day, as I felt through the Rosen movement that each time I went to chemo I thought I might die.  I knew there was a reason they monitored us as they did, and we had happened to catch an episode of West Wing where a father of one of the characters died while receiving chemo.    I knew it wasn't just a trip to the park and I could say rationally that all was fine, and there was another part of me that was not sure I would survive.  I felt today how truly grateful I am to be alive. 

Theresa today spoke of how we grow many sets of wings in our lives, of how we are fledglings again and again.  I like the thought of it, and the image of my diaphragm as between my roots and my wings.  Today was about the diaphragm, that place that is, as Marion says, the bridge between our conscious and unconscious.   We worked with all the many ways we move and touch to stimulate the diaphragm.  No wonder I feel tired this evening as I continue to work to integrate this year.  I am ready for Thanksgiving.   I just have the fun parts, the making of pies, dips and rolls.   Chris comes tomorrow, and we begin, and Jeff and Jan on Thursday.  Again, I say, I am grateful for life.   This may be the best Thanksgiving ever, for me.
