I’ve been thinking a lot about forward motion. When we’re injured or sick, we need help from people who are healthy and in possession of the resources and know-how to help, whether it’s chicken soup or setting a bone and a cast. Recovery takes teamwork. A musical partner of mine and I tell stories to a nursing home audience of young-adult shut-ins. We know that talking about our activities out and about in the community-region-world is akin to bringing a gift. Rather than hiding our mobility for their protection, we bring images and accounts of life on the outside for their benefit.
