chemistry set

this is not really a post. this is just a warm-up for a post because i feel so out of practice since last week, when I foolishly mistook my macbook pro for a hydrangea plant, badly in need of hydration. what a fool i was!

And then there was surgery… the final episode of my 5-surgery mini-series to restore functionality to a paralyzed left vocal cord.

So this is my very first post with my brand new laryngeal implant and my brand new super deluxe super expensive macbook pro that i can only afford with 18 months of 0% APR financing that i have blind faith i can one day pay off. Actually, the laryngeal implant was quite a bit more expensive… but who wants to write about finances? Not me.

i am not at my sharpest or sharp at all this eve… my body and mind as a surgical chemistry experiment. antibiotics, steroids, laxatives, several flavors of pain meds. And then there’s this scary scar along my neck. but who wants to hear me write about my neck.

i am just grateful to be here and to be buoyed up by so many mysterious and familiar faces and forces.



About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.

    Wow. That is quite a lot to go through.

    I do believe a shortage of money-nuns requires some of us to commit to such a blind faith, as I have done as well. Ecological fate and so on and so forth. (Do not try to make any sense of that. lol)

    I will have to look up what a laryngeal implant is, but until then, I do hope that it will prove worthwhile. And that those surgeries “paid off.” 🙂
