It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

My Poor Nose

So ... I have ( had ) a pretty decent nose.
It is right there in the middle of my face, for one thing.
It is straight, no deviating from the norm.
I can breathe through it pretty well most of the time.
I can smell things better than some people.. which can be a curse more than a blessing.

I opened the cupboard door, to put something away, it is above the counter where I was standing.
I closed the door, but turned my head for some reason and slammed the door corner into the side of my nose.


It hurt so badly that I walked to the doorway to the living room and just told my husband, I hurt my nose.
I was not sure if I wanted to see it.
I was afraid it might have been hanging off by a thread or perhaps, permanently crooked.
Or just a hole right through it .. half a nose above, half a nose below.

A little time has passed now.
I still have my nose. I don't quite feel it now.
I have a good doctor, with just the right touch, tools and miracle medicines.
The red /possibly blue part of the nose and dark bruise under my eye are yet to advance, I might be lucky and this is the worst of it.

I can see me now. On my birthday, all dressed up and walking into a restaurant with this big red and blue honker and a half closed eye... instead of a birthday, it will be a Pity Party.

Due to the Nose Incident.. I have nothing to post about.
We went to the park, we visited with the family, we watched people in the park, had a great lunch and tonight we will go to a local parrilla.

Other than the Nose Incident, it has been a beautiful day.

I have a headache, I have to go lie down.
Pup feels sorry for me but he is not crazy about the way the Nose is looking.. he thinks mine might be bigger than his.

  3. Pup asked me to thank Dolce for the note. He has been making sure I kept those cold compresses on the nose. Between his leg and my nose, we keep each other busy.
