Recovering hand 🖐 + heart ❤️

Gotta write about how this year I nearly lost function of both my right hand and heart, it feels like a major lesson with implications reverberating for years to come…an initiation and crashing through questions of…can you bear a life and death with these in disability and failure? If I receive these functions back in part or near full, what will I do with them? How will I care for these differently? What will I stop 🛑 doing? What will I use this citizenship, hand and heart to cultivate?

For now, until I find the words, so thankful for healers, doctors, shifus, friends, hands, heart—all community and body shared deeply…
