Alas, the name of the deck uses the American spelling, so I must follow suit. Pun!
TWENTY – JUDGMENT
I spoke to my friend whose husband languishes in bed, unable to walk. She has to change his urinal and bedpan and she goes out every morning and buys him a paper and a Pro-Line ticket so he can bet the lottery. When he fills it out she drives to the store to play it for him. He won’t get out of bed except to go to the doctor.
It’s scary to contemplate how one would act in a similar situation. But I don’t think my active, creative mind would allow me to lie down passively and need someone to wait on me while I lie helpless. My husband agrees; we vow not to let life unfold like that. Pain is tough, I live with it all day and night too. If you can’t walk you can stand and stretch or stretch in the bed. You have to move the blood and lymph around in your body or bad things happen.
Creative people have the impulse to make things. I could be dying and I’d want to use my hands in some way, I can’t settle otherwise.
I must continue to take action and change so I don’t end up in a similar situation. There ARE worse things than death. Judgment is also about self-discovery and I will counteract hibernating and passivity in myself, learn new scripts for new plays, and have new goals.
