life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"

The Spark of Passion




I take a deep breath and silently ask my heart 
for the strength to never ever listen to anyone 
who tells me to stop being myself. 
Then I promise my heart 
to forever embrace my eccentricities. 
To breathe in the spark of passion
that lights the fire in my soul
and to always surround myself 
with the wild energy that makes my heart tingle.
