During the process I have been reflecting on the lessons of the experience. All very existentialist of me and getting into the positive place of mind and heart etc.
Well …. A very interesting thing happened. An accident a couple of nights ago has shaken me to the core.
A fluke of timing and space and I took a massive tumble on my scooter. Both machine and body somersaulted and came to a sudden stop due to the presence of a wall. I led with my head and considering the trajectory of the motion and the potential mechanism of injury – well, let’s just say I am a tad bewildered that I able to be telling this tale.
No broken bones but a lot of contusions and bruises, leaving me feeling very sore and sorry for myself. Yes, I know, that all will heal and I also know that I was so very fortunate, it was not worse than it is. BUT it is the potential of what could have been that has shaken me to the core.
Fortunately the paramedic in the family was not far away and responded VERY quickly when he heard the noise. His DRABCD of the scene soon determined he could and would manage the scene, the wife and the cleanup.
Back to the potential …. In a split second so much could have changed and every single thing I take for granted would have been totally different, forever. That is what has rattled my cage so much. The potential of it all.
Still processing …….. I will have to share the conclusion when I finally reach it.
PS the ankle was and is fine – fabulous plaster cast protection!
