“Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”
I want to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me with encouragement after last night’s post. I am still feeling the feelings, but I haven’t lost hope. Or faith. I do have another plan for another facility that have been forming behind the scenes for awhile and someone who has been helping me navigate the path. So I am not as disappointed with Rancho’s rejection of Vernon’s case as it may have seemed. There are also other Rehab Hospital programs that we can look into. I almost want to enquire just to get a variety of opinions on Vernon’s current stage of recovery. But I feel positive about the place I hope he will be going next. This won’t be the TBI Gold Standard of Rancho Los Amigos, or even a Rehab Hospital for that matter, but as far as a skilled nursing facility, I think it will be a place he can receive more progressive therapy. I won’t share more details till it happens as so many of my best-laid plans oft go awry.
I keep pushing walls hoping for hidden doors. So far its the only one that has opened, and its still only a crack. But that’s how the light gets through.
The above image arrived today as a print by my talented friend Elif whom I met on Instagram years ago and then in person, when she showed Justine and I around her exotic Istanbul for a day. She is one of the best street photographers I know of. You can see more of her marvelous work here.
This print will be available for sale either here or in a future auction.
