Perhaps it was the Harry Potter influence, but Zoe had a kick a few weeks back of writing fortunes and having us draw them from a hat. They included:
“You will be famous”
“Have fun in Japan”
“You will spend all your money”
“Today is the day”
The one that I drew was: “Soon your life will feel brand new”
And…Life does feel brand new! But also familiar and lovely. How did the little swami know?! These weeks off chemo have been nothing short of glorious. I’ll be hounding her for another fortune when this wears off. I wouldn’t mind a trip to Japan.
