My back went out last week.
It’s not a new experience, but unfortunately one that I’m becoming more and more familiar with. This time was worse than before.
So, today here I lie, flat on my back, captive of anyone with mobility; talky kids, wet dog, handsome husband’s dreaming of spring and motorcycles.
Inside, I’m running. Inside, I’m cleaning my neglected house. Inside, I’m outside taking pictures of the gorgeous sun glistening off trees heavy with mounds of snow. Inside, I’m chasing my boys up the stairs tickling them until they pee.
Yet, here I lie.
As I was biding my time snooping around on the internet I came across this video of my beautiful friend, Maykou. She, too, has had back problems; pain and surgery and lying around waiting. But not today. Today, she dances.
On the inside, I’m dancing, too.
