Audio of Majo John reading this text:
Pretty much out of the blue, the virus ( or something) jumped me real hard over the course of last Monday.
￼I live way out in the country – and I have been very sick. Saturday, very worn down from several days of being sick, when a friend on the phone asked me to “promise me that you will stay alive until tomorrow”, I just couldn’t promise.
“Last night I fought sleep because I was afraid that when I woke up￼, I might be dead.”
I think it was the help of friends on the phone yesterday￼ that allowed me to fight back last night and this morning.
I tell the story of my capacity to fight even for my own life kicking back in, in this emotional￼ and scenically beautiful 8″ video, filmed in the lower pasture of the farm where little Panchita and I have mostly parked our camper van to stay indoors for the coldest months of the winter, January and February.
We still were spending our nights in the van for the whole month of December￼. To hear a description of our very real difficulties on Christmas Day – and the very generous and even heroic efforts by my friends to get us in out of the cold – either scroll down in this blog until you get back to December 27, or enter “Two sides of Spruce Pine￼” in the search bar in the upper right column at the top of this blog. You can access this search function anytime you are in this blog.
