A Whimsical Bohemian, One World One Heart Blog Event
Hello, thank you for coming to my breast cancer blog, the sacred ordinary. Would you like a cup of tea, while I tell you a story about me?
Once upon a time, in a land so far away from here, there was a princess with golden locks, a song in her heart, and a pen in her hand. She ruled over a candlelit kingdom of lost boys and lost puppies, cooking over the burning fire of a crockpot, and finding enchantment in a garden full of fairies and gnomes, hummingbirds and butterflies, and two doves coo cooing while bay breezes chimed chimes.
She had no magical powers, but believed she did, for most of her life whispered the prayer "Let No Bad Happen" and thought it so, not realizing it was mostly because when she looked for Good, she always found it.
A plague fell upon her, she saw it, appearing as a black hole in a starry sky. There were thousands like her.
Much was asked of her to battle the plague. Give up your magical thinking, give up your golden locks, give up the comfort of your routines and rituals, and surrender your body to potions and poisons that will kill the plague, unless they kill you first.
When you have done all these, she was told, then you must go to the Kingdom of Lost Breasts. You will travel there alone, except for the help of a Wizard. You must leave your breasts alongside millions of others, bravely surrendered by the Sacred Order of the Sisterhood of Cancerous Breasts.
When you return from that place, we will cast more magic upon you, until you glow like a firefly, every night for twenty nights plus eight.
The princess did all that was asked of her, met every challenge in the abyss of her fear, with the help of legions of Angels that had arrived, knowing she could not do this on her own.
Every night, her empty pockets were refilled with starlight.
She waits now, for passage to the Kingdom where she will leave behind accessories, and walk away with her life, still believing Good is found everywhere, and mostly in a heart that loves.
