I am powerless: II

Just a quick update:   Old Blue is fully repaired and cost surprisingly less money than expected. I’m home in Minnesota; the accident seems like long ago.

Why did I feel so powerless? What was my problem? Can’t remember. I would love to reflect on it more, but I’ve got many things to do:   work in the yard, update Microsoft Money, and then there’s that cauliflower in the fridge, I should do something with.

It’s easy to forget that feeling, that raw, desperate anger from a single moment in time. The day of the accident, I felt like I looked a painful truth, and yet now with so many house chores around me, and a To Do list growing daily, it’s hard to connect with that moment.

I am sure it won’t be long before I am brought to my knees once again and I will once again realize just how far my power extends.
