Broken

detail of a ceiling in the Uffizi

My heart is broken, I said.  So is your ankle, he said.

The ancient cobblestones in this ancient city are famously treacherous.  We've had a very interesting week figuring out how to navigate with a wheelchair; how to manage 135 stone steps up to our flat on crutches; and how to rest a camera on a crutch while photographing a ceiling.

The universe is telling me to slow down and look where I am going.

Excellent advice Lynne. It happened to me and I now look where I am going. No more eyes at beautiful ceilings and skies, especially in unfamiliar territory.
Sorry for your broken ankle.

Hello Gina nice to see you here! Yes I probably tripped 300 times in this place before I actually injured myself. I got distracted for one second and down I went. So embarrassing!

thanks, Sylvie-- I have noticed SO much more from the wheelchair. But also just saying "no, can't do it right now" sometimes, it's such a relief
