My reality in imagery

Now:  Sometimes, we get caught up in nostalgia, future fantasy, or both, and we don’t embrace the “now.” For this week’s challenge, take a moment to notice your present, and share a photo of it.

This photo sums up my NOW.  The crutches are my primary means of walking any distance.  It took me a while to accept that I had to use them, rather than an option on a bad day.  I had to face that I had a hairline fracture on my left ankle and it hurts, is weak and swells a lot.  Walking aggravates the injury – it is as simple and complex at that.

The pillow is a soft place for my ankle to rest on to escape the bumps of the road.  It can be a very “vocal” trip without it.  I can drive and this is a photo inside my car from when I ventured out alone the other day.  The photo is also with my poem at:

I can drive my car and when in it I feel less disabled.  The problem is if I get out of my car or have to carry anything – it is near impossible! with my hands occupied by the crutches.   Plus maneuvering around insane shoppers is not easy or safe (more for them than me as I will use these crutches!!).

The white envelop in front of the chair is filled with scraps of paper.  On which, I have writing ideas.  Apparently being unable to actually walk, gives my mind free reign to wander in my writing.  I have lost count of the posts this month but I am grateful that my writing has returned to its place as my solace and I now have great sites like this to share my photographs.
