my body

My body is wonderful, mysterious, stupid and it can't be trusted to tell me anything true.

Last evening I could barely walk because of the pain from the heel spur in my left foot. Then during the night the pain in my body moved. I woke up with a terrible ache in my left shoulder, no matter what position it was in. I did stay in bed and finally got back to sleep. I woke up this morning - no pain in my heel at all. Horrible ache in my left shoulder still there. Looking back - before the heel spur started I was having a very bothersome ache in my right elbow - which went away as soon as the heel started to hurt. This is not the first time I have noticed this. I've known my body is capable of this for many years - that it's not to be trusted. Traveling pains. There has to be one pain somewhere at all times. Just plain weird. I am going to the doctor on Friday for my semiannual checkup and I was going to tell him about my heel - maybe I don't have to now.

Heavy rain last night - still raining - looks like a dark day today.

Watched Moonlight last night - exceptionally well acted and worth watching. I wanted to rent it cause it had won awards - glad we did.

Wild Geese
by Mary Oliver

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

~ I came across this poem by way of a link that [livejournal.com profile] bobby1933 shared yesterday. It really spoke to me too.

Such a rainy day today! I stayed in all day. My left foot, which I thought had a heel spur has been perfectly pain free for the first time in 2 months. I have no idea why - makes no sense. Dave conjectured (kidding) that maybe I had so much pain in my foot yesterday because I was breaking the spur off when I was hiking and then it traveled up and lodged in my shoulder in the night. It's all a mystery to me.
