Pain is really a killer of Joy

As body aches come and go in transient episodes life hs its usual gentle wave motions

You live

You learn

You get gentle wave motion. 

For a while i  have been dealing with leg pain on the right

Sciatic in nature,it flares but for  weeks its been yammering ceaslessly,fearlessly,constantly 

Wake up with edema in it and i walk with fear..taking deliberate slow steps..honest steps

Because i am showing what its really like to the world. No hiding this pain..right here..in your face.

Decline is inevitable for those  who push. But as many pain sufferers know..life goes on,bills pile up and those who depend on you...don't magically stop.

Whatever happened down there..is in the way. When i went and shot surf it was there..but the water helped with decompression.

My joy is fading at the thought of facing pain..it really shouldn't..as my mental state is separate from th physical and emotional..all separate..all intertwined..all equal. 

So its an emotional issue at heart

It hurts..ok 

I know it hurts..ok

But knowing its going to hurt makes it hard.

Outcome is dependent on effort 

So ill toast the pain with a glass of dark brooding wine,maybe smoke an fragrant cigar and look into the smoke like a sage  searching for answers
