My sister fell

In September, 2019 my sister had a dirt bike accident and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury.  She recently asked me to make a totem for the Dr. that was instrumental in her healing.  It took a whole team but he was the she believes recognized her needs the most.  Every “bit” in the totem has meaning.

 

 

   She fell

  her brain broke.

She died

  and found peace.

 

The love of her life breathed his heart into her

  And strangers prayed on the mountain top.

 

  In that grey area

between life and death

  She chose to live.

  so far to go

 

Right left one step

      she began.

.again.

   

        Reaching to know the things she knew before.

 

  daysweeksmonths

wrapped in tender, loving care

using all the tools they didn’t know they had.

           Everyday she said when can I go home.

 

“Faith is knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.”

    Kahlil Gibran

 

  And the day came

    Her assemblage was complete

  enough to go home.
