My sincerest apologies to those I have disappointed by not being there to teach you. But honestly, all of my life I have put the needs of others first, and this time I have to think of me first and concentrate on being well so I can be there next year...and create a DVD of my class...and write a screenplay...and a book...and do more art...and learn to play golf (even though I'm not sure life is long enough to do that)...and enjoy my wonderful husband, kids and grandkids...and garden...and get better at yoga...and...and...and... I just can't wait to have this surgery and recovery behind me so I can get back at all the things I love to do.
Many have sent their prayers/good wishes/healing thoughts/entreaties to the Universe. Thank you, I'll take all of them in any form and use them to energize my time of healing. I'm using this time to listen to my guided visualization pre-surgery CD, to rest, to enjoy a few more weeks of being outside before the long recuperation and to mentally prepare for what is ahead. My dear husband Nils is my rock. He is supportive, encouraging and completely here for me, and keeps me grounded on the days I soar into the realm of worry and panic. Thanks, dear!
Thanks to everyone for being understanding. I'll be back, better than ever!
