APPOINTMENTS

Reminders we are not finite Lest we should forget Time tends to stop and hover Undetectable In a slow motion whirl Caught in an endless loop Like a 45 record that skips It’s a typical phenomena In all hospital waiting rooms A soupy silence so very palpable Contemplating the meaning of life And what is left of it Prisoner caught in a time warp While life goes on outside this window posted on February 20, 2019

Too reminiscent of February, 2018, for me. I was told I wouldn't live two months by one doctor; two weeks, by another. Guess what...I've healed and still kick'in around. Well done.

OMG - take good care of yourself so you can stick around a lot longer. You are a great inspiration, ML!

"while life goes on outside the window" - this applies to every one of us at one time or another. I can remember hospital rooms,looking out and seeing lower roofs, and not much else. A bleak time.

I completely understand this one, from being in the hospital for surgeries. Excellent perception :)
