I talk quite a bit on this blog, post pieces of my writing and so on, but mostly I keep it impersonal. In that spirit, I wrote my last post about seeing the world from a wheelchair…and my post was all about being grateful.
Then of course, I went into a funk, and offline.
I started on a short story and finished it in a week. It could possibly be the best I’ve written so far, (or the worst,) but it certainly was the most difficult. I had to go off the internet on my laptop, and shut myself in a room every chance I got.
Which means I did not check my blog the last few days.
And now that I did, I’m moved by the outpouring of generosity, kindness and concern from my blog friends.
To answer everyone, I am back on my feet, I have chronic problem/s, which would require moderately ugly shoes and a restricted diet, but other than that I’m good. I’d rather not go into details here, so as not to bog down the blog with my health issues :)
Thanks go to everyone who took the time to ask what was wrong and wish me well, I’m grateful to have each one of you on my blog, and as a consequence, in my life.
Thanks also for reminding me that my online existence is an inseparable part of who I am, and that I can’t just write about me being in a wheelchair on this blog, then waltz off and expect everyone to take it in a theoretical sense…..my virtual life is very real in some ways.
Special Thanks to Stuart, who gave me such a wonderful shout out on his blog about this space and also about the A-Z ebook I’m working on, and also to J.C. Martin, for publishing this interview based on Stories for Sendai.
I think I’m back again… and I think I’m happier than usual to be back. I missed you all—- I did not know how much till I read your comments. Thankyou.
