it just might work

Walking to my echocardiagram, the sky exploded in thunder and lightening. The rain was driving, almost tropical. Normally, for those of us who search for signs, a violent storm would be ominous, but not then. At that moment I felt better. I don't know, something about electricity coursing through a surprised November sky made me think about how I don't often have trust in my body, and how sometimes unexpected things happen. For me, this was a sign that my heart just might work.

I was right. It looks like there is a minor problem, but nothing to write home about. No gaping, flopping ventricle, no evidence of a massive heart attack. I have to await the final word, but it looks ok.

in my culture, abundant rain or a violent storm is actually good luck.

twice this has happened to me: once on my wedding day, and once when my third daughter was born.

this is good luck...no doubt about it.

I tried to respond last night but I had too many drinks and I couldn't quite put the words together. And now, still not so much.

I need to go drink a pound of coffee. And water.

And thanks for the natural outpourings.
