Five years is a bit of a long time between posts… If you are still looking, well hi there, and thank you so much for your interest!
I’ve decided to write about this topic again. And more widely, cutting a broader swath this time, I think. If this work sticks and helps someone, terrific. Here’s hoping. As always, its intention is to help me think and to help you find focus, too. I’m leaving my breadcrumb trails. If you have something to add, point out, correct my thinking, direct my attention to, that would be great. Always open for learning.
It’s still going to be about getting fit, staying fit, the life of the body. But I’m getting still more fierce, focused, political. Because, as we learned from our teachers long ago, the body is politic, after all.
But to any readers who may actually still be around, as stunning as that might be, don’t you worry. I don’t think I’ve lost my humor. Not yet.
Right. To catch up… Well, I’ve been buried for five years. Really in a bunker of disease- and pharma- and pain-induced confusion. I’m mostly out of the bunker. I’m well up the stairs. More than head and shoulders, I do believe. (I don’t tempt fates by bragging.) More work to do. Much more. That’s the other piece of it. I’m not writing this time from the vantage point of the peak of health. I’m writing from the place of fighting to get back to fit. But I’m getting there, and I’m going to share what’s working for me. Some amazing stuff. Really great stuff.
I was lost to illness for a long while. And I’m so sick of being sick. I’m not going to focus on illness here. I’ll work on behalf of my ill shadow self on my other blogs, but this place is all about rising from near-dead.
Skinny Daily Post is coming back with a new life and a new mind that works in a different way than it used to. Appreciating what I can do. Being thankful that I am still here. Assembling the raw bits into a new being and a new person and moving ahead. I’m writing in wide, loopy, non-specifics, yes. Something I would never advise students of writing to do, but only because the real writing comes next. This is just the announcement that I will begin again.
But here is a twist. Part of my illness brought with it a bit of havoc with my brain that led me to artwork as therapy. Oh this is a long story that will spin out and spin out…
So this blog will include some of that too. No kidding. It’s going to be a graphic blog. A big change in my life is that I live in two places now. In Michigan and in Florida. And I love to paint both places. You’ll see the places I love. And some of the people, too.
Oh yeah. It’s going to be a new voice, a new look, a new way of thinking about food, and I have discovered that much, much has changed out there in the world of nutrition science. My goodness! YOU haven’t been asleep have you, World?
