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!"

Pushed me

"7 Flights Up"  CJ Evans
To those of you who have pushed me, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have fallen.
To those of you who laughed at me, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have cried.
To those of you who just couldn’t love me, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have known real love.
To those of you who hurt my feelings, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have felt them.
To those of you who left me lonely, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have discovered myself.
But it is to those of you who thought I couldn’t do it;
   It is you I thank the most,
Because without you I wouldn’t have tried.
                                                            Robert Tew


"From Me to You"  Janis Ian
