In Others’ Words: Imagining Change
With all the reclining I’ve done the past two weeks, you might think I’ve been on vacation, but that’s not quite the case. On March 27, I had back surgery for a badly herniated disc.
A glimpse of me going to surgery – not literally: As the anesthesiologist was encouraging me to inhale and go to my “happy place,” I debated on where my “happy place” was – beach or mountains? And then, I interrupted my mulling, lifting the mask away from my nose and mouth and announcing: “Wait a minute. If you want me to walk from the gurney and get on the surgical table, I can’t go to my happy place yet!”
The anesthesiologist assured me the OR staff would get me where I needed to be for surgery – and I went to sleep to the sound of everyone laughing.
Just in case you didn’t notice: I’m launching (and celebrating) a whole new look on my website! I’ve planned this redo for more than a year, wanting it to coincide with the upcoming release of my novel, Somebody Like You, which comes out in May. Thanks to the brilliance and hard work of Matt Jones of Jones House Creative, I am over-the-moon thrilled with the new site. Please take a look around. One of my favorite aspects of the website is a little “hidden message” Matt included – something he remembered from when we discussed what I wanted for the website. I was so touched that Matt listened, heard what I said, and incorporated it into the design. See if you can discover a quote – what else? – from our conversation!
I’m back to my regular blogging schedule starting on Wednesday, the 16th, even while I wait for the surgeon’s okay to get back to normal. That will take a while.
In Your Words: So tell me: What changes have gone on in your life in the past few weeks? I’d love to hear about them!
