Pearls and Oysters

PearlsandOysters1

An oyster naturally responds to an irritant and turns it into a pearl. I have experienced this reaction for myself in the past couple of years. In January 2011, just as I turned 65,  I became seriously ill in the space of a few days. I was in hospital for most of the following 15 months, recovering from various infections and after being on the liver transplant list for nearly 3 more years, I received a new liver on November 4, 2014.

lllness and the resultant downsizing have given me the gift of setting new priorities and discarding much that had become irrelevant and unnecessary for  daily living. I’ve had a chance to consider the old, set my compass for the future and share with you while this process unfolds, even as I write.

I value your comments and feedback and trust that you will find a resonance in my writing as we journey together, one day at a time.
