SUNDAY POET BRAIN SURGERY

Thought I'd leave that "poet" mistype in!

Tired night so not as much of an improvement as the past few days trying to type. But still what a long way to have come already. (Typing with my left finger is faster). Also was able to read a paragraph out of a TIME to myself for the first time silently (I got back being able to read out loud a few days ago).

Unfortunately (phew, that was a chore to get right), the article was about Sarah Palin. How did it ever come to this. Oh well, out of my control.

(PS: I feel almost guilty for all the concern and worry I've caused family and friends. A kind of survivor's guilt thing, which is interesting. But mostly the calm of not being able to control events beyond the moment. The ultimate spiritual surrender.)

Hello Michael,

I don't read many blogs, but upon checking yours, I find the news of your surgery. I wish you a full recovery and redoubled strength by the time you read with Ray at the Poetry Project. In my books, that has to rank as THE reading of 2010.

I'm sure you'll savor this Thanksgiving.
