This has got to be my favourite bumper sticker I’ve seen lately. So, last week I had a little bit of a… thing happen. Not that I started down the trail on my bike with the intention of hitting a tree going mach chicken, but there I was. Went from super fun to super gasping for air, a little loss of memory, and a “CODE RED” ambulance ride 3.5 hours back home with the possibility of needing back surgery. Alas, here I am. Alive. With a minimum of 2 fractured vertebrae (T3 & T4 for you nerds with a possibly T1 & T2 also cooked). But I’m walking. In pain and stiff… but I didn’t need surgery and I didn’t die. Super neat.
And, with anything in life, there is gold to be found in the darkest of times. In sickness. In accidents. In all of it. I get to discover this and in this 27th episode of Song & Rants I explore the benefits of pain and getting injured.
