Thanks, Grace, and the Universe

I lost three days of work to an intense pain bout, and today I'm back in the world of sitting up for long enough to get serious drawing done. Thanks pours out of me to my old/new pain management clinic for the treatments that are keeping me functional when my pain is at usual Heidi-levels. The three day hell was a random pulling of a muscle in my hip that is excruciating. I've only done it three or four times I can think of, and the timing was just bloody lovely.

Anyway- big bad all gone.

I got through it with both great drugs and a lot of meditation. I usually relax by counting down from 108- a number that soothes me because mala beads have a hundred and eight beads. But this time I couldn't follow numbers at all, so I did mantras and called to Ganesha in tears. Laughed at myself a lot for being a theist when I'm hurting. I had a gorgeous vision I'll write about later. Here is the beautiful mantra I've been working with this week:

Aum vighna nashanaya namah
(Can't find a pretty Sanskrit written version.) 
"This mantra invokes the Lord Ganesha to remove every impediment in your life and in your works. By constant meditation on this mantra, all obstacles and blocked energy in your physical and astral bodies are released."
And so, thanks to my beloved deity, and to my husband who was AMAZING BAZINGA BADASS as a nurse, and my Fey Girly Bitty One, who has been so careful and patient. Thanks to the electric mojo that is the network of beauty composing our Universe and to pharmacists and heating pad manufacturers.
