Two-Bit Musings.

Hi.

It’s 2022.

I started the year with a fresh spirit. On New Year’s Day I diligently sat at our computer desk, typing the beginnings of an optimistic blog post.

And then shit went sideways.

Again.

Pre-eclampsia hit at the end of my 32nd week of pregnancy. Thanks to an extraordinary medical team, our daughter was born at exactly 34 weeks, and needed only ten days in the NICU.

I’m also elated to tell you she’s pretty much perfect.

Tiny, yes. But perfect.

And I thank my weary body for getting us through.

Here’s to the next leg of adventure in this crazy-ass life, yo.

Happy New Year, Dear Reader.

This-Here Body.

We only get one, you know.

. . .

I’ve mentioned my body from time to time in my writing.

It’s part of my life, after all.

And as this new, chilled-out year begins, I vow to treat her with the utmost respect.

No juicing diets. No bans on carbs or candy.

Just. . . respect.

Rest. Listen. Nourish. Repeat.

‘Cuz she’s taken you this far, and will be with you ‘til the end, Snap.

I love you, pale legs.

A SnapDragon Blessing.

‘Cuz 2021’s gotta be good, yo.

. . .

May you greet each day with a fresh, untroubled mind.

May you have all of the freshly-brewed coffee your little heart can handle.

May you have warm hands and feet, Netflix marathons, and a sizable stack of unread books before you.

May you laugh with your belly, and love your face without makeup.

May you eat without guilt.

May you safely gather with loved ones once this pandemic ends, and make up for all of the plans it spoiled.

May you clear your throat, lift your head high, and put your incredible self out into this world, love.

You got this.

Happy New Year, Dear Reader.
