Today, I just want to share my fellow blogger Joss’s [crowingcrone.com] post. It’s actually an excerpt from her book about fibromyalgia, but I can relate to the post in another way; the word «brave».
When I first came to Canada, I had a problem with that word … or rather, the usage of it [brave/courageous]. ‘Brave’ to me meant firefighters running into burning buildings, or people jumping into the icy waters to save a fellow human being or an animal. NOT to post a blog on WordPress.
Many years ago now, I told a person I was going to take part in a photo challenge, and she immediately responded: «Oh, you’re really BRAVE!» That had me baffled then, but I’ve since learnt a lot about the usage of the word.
So this morning, when I read Joss’ poem, I got almost mesmerized … it spoke to me, and I want to share it with my blogger friends here. Please, click the link above.
