Back in the Saddle, or HoMD #33

This illness, this sickness, this ick of my body will not win. It will not triumph over me. I will survive its nasty phlegm and low-grade nausea.

How do I know I will emerge the victor from this protracted battle?

I know because hope shined on me today, and I basked in its warm rays. I saw in hope’s bright light that there is more to existence than mere existence. Life offers more than fitful naps and lame television. I can actually do things I like to do.

I can knit.

I said there was hope. I didn’t say I felt better. Knitting is as far as I go for now.
