For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

Twinkling Trees

Trees.....they shelter us from the rain, provide shade from the Summer's sun and encompass us with their glorious energy. And if that wasn't enough they dazzle us with a color change just before Winter comes. Sometimes you can capture a moment, just when the sun is going down, where the trees seem to twinkle and come to life. 

This print from Donna Geissler, aptly named "Sweet Dreams" has an ethereal quality to it that I just couldn't resist.
