Ticking Clock

As of today there are 133 days left in the year. I am still trying to figure out why there are several websites dedicated to calculating this. Is there a cult of New Year’s Eve-ophiles that I am not aware of?

I started looking about three weeks back. I was told the research was to start at the end of the year. Figured I would see how long I – theoretically – had to wait.

I am not one to wish my life away but getting to this particular milestone would be nice. I want to get the proverbial show on the road.

I feel like the clock is ticking and neither snow nor rain nor sleet nor gloom of night is going to keep me from going when I am called. I just have to be called.

The last three weeks have gone fast. I may have mentioned this before, but I like using things in my life to pull me along. Yoga festival, getting my photos framed for the contest, the start of school. Check. Check. Check. Keeping busy and having goals and a routine helps.

I am not even sure I will qualify for the clinical trial. Pretty sure but not 100%. There are all sorts of cancer screenings to go through. I guess if they screen me and discover cancer that might be a bit more important than having my eyes done. Some days it is a toss-up on that. Some days I know I would say to give me the immunosuppressant and I will take my chances. I need this deterioration stopped.

A friend of a friend is having a vitrectomy to correct a macular pucker. I asked if he would write a page about the experience. Maybe he will.

This guy is a runner. He is distressed because he won’t be able to run for about a month. Cannot bounce or be inverted. While I appreciate the addiction to exercise, I personally see this as a no-brainer. I can keep from going to hip hop and doing forward folds if it means I might see better. My activities will be there when I am able to resume them.

So I wait. The passage of time is apparent. It is dark earlier and evenings are cooler.  There is a flock of starlings roosting in our trees. It is soon fall and it will be winter quickly after.

Supposedly good things come to those who wait.  Also found a poster that says “good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up.”  And another one attributed to Joyce Meyer: “patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.”

Sigh.
