"The Exquisite Realization of Health"

Walt Whitman celebrates body and soul in his poem I sing the body electric. My soul was feeling fine post-election. I confirmed my physical health yesterday at my check-up at Dana Farber.

My blood is normal. My next check-up is in February. Yes, February.

Four immunizations, two in each arm, was my reward for good health. I had a nasty reaction to one or more of them. Dizziness and nausea drove me back to bed this morning. I'm feeling a little better now.

There's nothing like illness to make you appreciate wellness.

I really liked your quote and completely related to your insights about the relationship between health and illness. I agree, and love coming to your blog for your humor, REALITY (which includes the good, bad, and ugly), and perspective!
