It was the morning of the medical procedure that shall not be named. I was up at 3am downing a drink that should not be downed; followed by 32 oz. of water – a glorious way to begin the day.

The glory was in watching Oprah Winfrey’s ‘Belief’ series. I purchased the series sight unseen.

‘I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I’ve been knocking from the inside!’

That Rumi quote kept a woman who had suffered a severe surfing accident, then in a coma, focused on the here and now.
She had read the Rumi quote when she was young and now found it saved her. She was a practicing Catholic who, upon waking up, was called to the Sufi path .

The doctors told her she would never walk again.

She did. She eventually traveled to Konya, Turkey to become a Whirling Dervish.

Turning in the sacred ceremony she heard the voices of the doctors: “You won’t ever walk again.”

She said, “Then I will dance.”
