I was just thinking … about disabilities

By Barbara Polan Everyone has challenges and they span a wide spectrum: medical, physical, psychological, circumstance. And everyone responds differently – from resigned acceptance to fighting mad. I have a physical challenge: I am disabled – half-paralyzed by a stroke two-and-a-half years ago. I have struggled to recover as much function as I can, while the medical community says that I have finished improving, that no stroke survivor does after two years post-stroke. Although others might define my situation differently, I find that my challenge is working hard toward an unknown endpoint.

Inklings: Sometimes you get sunflowers

I's always sad to see an old tree cut down. One raw late-winter day many years ago, arborists took down a grand, ancient pine tree in our yard. I don's remember all our reasons for this, but, once it was cut, we could see obvious signs of the internal rot that would have taken it anyway, probably tumbling huge limbs onto somebody's house. The decision to cut it down had been a good one.
