Bev took an Uber and brought me the spare keys. Got back to the office after work and it was still beautiful outside and cold inside, so I open both ends of the building so the warm spring wind could clear the cold cobwebs of winter. The wind caught 3 full-length mirrors and tipped them and my favorite purple glass vase over, breaking 2 mirrors and the vase. (If any of you are short on bad luck, stop by, I have 14 years worth available- FREE).
After cleaning all the broken glass up, I went upstairs and tossed my coat on the coat rack on the wall, which promptly fell on the floor taking everything with it! I'm standing there looking at all my coats, aprons, packs and plastic bag collection piled on the floor and finally burst out laughing and said "Bring it on! I can take it!" At which point, of course, everything stopped.
The ensuing quiet reminded me of what I had been reading about Parkinsons winners - the people who seem to win with Parkinson's are those who realize they are not Parkinson's, but are in fact a healthy human being with Parkinson's. At that point, they retake control of their lives and start dancing with their bodies and souls. If you want to see more of what I am talking about read "Goodbye Parkinsons's, Hello Life" or "Fighting Parkinson's and Winning" by Howard Shifke.
