Beauty as the thread that connects us
For those of you who don't already know, almost two weeks ago now, I was tending to my garden. One minute I was trimming plants and cleaning up some palm fronds on my front lawn, and the next minute I had slipped on said fronds and landed on an open armpit. As you may have seen from my Instagram stories, I am in a sling as a result of tearing off the outer corner bone of my shoulder. And so, for the time being, I am one-armed, my arm tucked into a sling because the shoulder area I've broken is not a part of the body that you can plaster. So my only options were to have surgery to have it stapled back or to keep my arm still for weeks so that it mends itself.
