Is anyone as amazed as I am that a woman who was shot in the head, only a few months ago is now able to take her seat in Congress and vote? Medical science, rehab, human will and perserverence are amazing things. Of course being a celebrity and getting the best possible care, being the kind of woman who had run for Congress and won also came into play Still ... not very long ago a wound like that would have been a death sentence or would have meant a terrible life in bed, unable to retain her capacities. Frankly, I don't know what her politics are but I know taht she's one brave, determined woman and that she had tremendous help all around. I rejoice for her.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
