With any recovery from morbidity there must go a certain healthy humiliation.
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
It’s been humbling to re-learn simple things like balance. I’ve always just walked, jumped, and kicked like I wanted to. Now I teeter and I wonder if I can ascend and descend a pool ladder (turns out I can). But, it’s coming back. During the days of the cast, I dreamt of sitting up in bed and putting both feet on the ground and hitting the road. Now I can do that. Paced, but I can. So I will balance with my eyes closed next. And then I will kick.
