Six Years Now

Every Thanksgiving I thank my lucky stars.  It’s been six years, over the Thanksgiving weekend, that Bugsy gamboled into my life and changed it forever.

Five years ago I started this blog. (It only took me one year to start.)

Four years ago I noticed that Thanksgiving tends to be a time of remembrance for loss, as well as for gain.

Three years ago I noticed that Thanksgiving tends to be a time of thanksgiving. I like what I wrote back then:  Bugsy “makes me feel love wash through me like I was transparent.”  Still true, if not more so.

Two years ago I failed to notice the anniversary altogether. The bar exam must have stunned all sense out of me.

Last year’s post I wrote amidst snow and the boys fighting.

And this year, six years since Bugsy’s arrival, I am starting to put my injured foot down and to wean myself off the crutches. Remember me sleeping with a box over my uncast broken foot, scared to death that Bugs would jump on it? Recently I put the box away, feeling confident enough without it.

This morning Bugs was pissy that I hadn’t yet got around to making his breakfast – by 5:30 a.m. He jumped on my injured foot.

I rejoice to report that I was fine. Scared and freaked out – but fine.

Things are looking up.

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.
