The Grand Canyon, Lymphedema, and Marathon Men
This is happening to me lately, and it is intense, emotional, and deeply good.
If you haven't had a moment like this, know that it is possible. You must dig in and you must move toward it with purpose. But it is a gentle purposefulness.
Like an anthropologist, you excavate. Like an investigator, one by one, you connect the dots. Like climbing a mountain, you put one foot in front of the other until the vista opens up before you.
You do it in therapy, you do it in conversation, you do it on your bicycle, on the yoga mat, in your journal, on the canvas. You do it by sitting still. You do it by refusing to rush. You do it by resisting abandoning yourself when you are uncomfortable, even if for only a single minute longer than you thought you could before. You do it by breathing. You do it by taking radically good care of yourself.
