I am cycling the city. Cruising through San Francisco on a cool evening. Then I am falling, really slowly. And now I am on my back. There is an IV in my arm. The stark hospital lights stave off what would be a warm, welcome sleep with the painkillers. My hip is broken. I am told that for the next couple of months I will not be walking.
In a moment everything can change. You know this already. The question is when that moment comes for you and life pivots some other way, how do you relate to it? This is a whole new experience for me. Painful, emotional, difficult, and absolutely new and just so interesting. I am grateful.
