Hugin and Munin ~ Thought and Memory
“Hugin and Munin fly each day
over the spacious earth.
I fear for Hugin, that he come not back,
Yet more anxious am I for Munin”.
(The Poetic Edda, Grímnismál)
“Hugin e Munin volano ogni giorno sulla Terra.
Ho paura che Hugin non possa fare ritorno, ma temo di più per Munin”.
🎵 “If I had a hearth” - Fever Ray

One year ago today I had my spinal surgery.
I posted a few photos (swipe) to show what was done and how I am now. First photo being within a couple hrs of waking up post op, leading to xrays a month later, to just a few days ago, laying down in excruciating pain, to today.
I was really hoping to be able to post a super epic 1 year progress then and now photo of me flipping around being my normal monkey me self, but I am unable to as of yet sadly.
Lets just say, things didn't go according to plan...
I've had more hard years than not. Trying, diffult, even tragic years have passed... but this past year, I have felt as though my very sense of self, of being, has been ripping away.
With added causes to my depression, & anxiety. I have been lonely, heartbroken and angry.
I have also been happy, positive, & hopeful.
I still have a long way to go, and I know, that that's ok.
Because I am grateful to have my loved ones in my life. I am grateful to have the ability again to go to doctors, specialists, therapists etc to work myself to the very core Every Single Day to get physically healthy again. To be able to be my full self again.
As much as the pain sucks, as exhausting as it is mentally, emotionally and physically. I'd rather feel that pain then be paralyzed or dead.
Things may be rough right now. But they could be worse. And I'm working day in and day out to get better.
Crazy, it's already been 1 year, yet it's also only been 1 year.
I miss dancing, archery, gaming, streaming, teaching, playing the violin, reading, swimming, running, hitting the gym, yoga, photography, speaking without exhaustion and losing my voice entirely, talking to my friends, singing, drawing, painting, traveling, flipping around, doing hand stands and cart wheels etc..
I am determined to heal. To return to my passions, to explore new passions and places. To come back better and stronger than ever. ✊
In a wakeful state of sleep
Falling into tunnels, endless deep
A fading memory, I can't revive
It isn't mine, not from this time
An acorn, hidden in the dark
Covered in the dust of an amnestic past
Flickering light llluminates the Cavern
My vision blurred, can't reach my mind
Hands of children, painted in red
Greet the wandering soul, with silence from the Dead
Zoomorphic shadows dancing with the lights
Half human, yet Spirit-like
Surrounded by the feeling of an endless night
The shapes of animals, once alive
A soft call from a Raven echoes
Into the tunnels underground
"You have gone lost,
Don't you remember that you were here before?"
Complex tunnels transform into a new horizon
Giant oak trees
Dropping acorns with wind
Growling from the depths
Transforms into a human voice
As I turn around, and freeze
"This is the way, everything must go
Welcome back to life, my child"
