Choosing a Life or Living a Life? (Sharon Dzialo)
Does that question sound pedantic? Here I am again, stealing the blog away from the husband. (Ed. It's really ok!) He has writer’s block OR he is stuck in chronic sorrow (his new favorite topic) OR he has been working too hard – raking, trimming, hauling and helping clean the blocked septic system. At any rate, he gives me no static when I decide to write.
I went by myself yesterday to see the movie THE WAY with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez. The husband does NOT enjoy sitting in a movie theater (Ed. He has PTSD and ADHD and .....can't sit still and focus) and I like not being distracted by his sighs of boredom and discomfort (Ed. like when he keeps checking his cell phone for the time.). I can completely lose myself in a good movie, as well as a good book – love that feeling. I have been in a deep funk lately and I was not really looking for distraction or entertainment. I NEED to find my way out .
Some may not view our life with Adam post – accident as a choice but it is. We choose to care for him at home. We choose to seek the best possible healing modalities. We chose to retire early and to live by the ocean . I don’t need churches or saints. Nature provides my access to the Divine, to the Source. We choose to work hard daily, always seeking to improve quality of life for ourselves and Adam.
