Living with an illness, there may be times when the ice cracks and you fall through.

Plans need to be released. What worked before no longer works.

For a while, you may flounder. Be there, in the depths.

Know that you will probably resurface. If you don’t, you get to go down, down, down and discover that there is life there, at the bottom of the trench.

You may meet strange companions. Perhaps their weirdness is, in fact, a glorious adaptation to living in the dark. Learn from them and perhaps you, too, will become luminous.
