Hide N’ Seek

I’m going in for a breast MRI and CT scan of my lungs today. It is part of regular screening post cancer and precaution for my higher than normal risk for lung cancer. It feels like a game hide n’ seek. When I go in to start the game of seeing if cancer is there, the eyes of my heart close and a graceful presence covers me and I wait, this is when the doctors and nurses start looking. I let them finish the game. If cancer is hiding I leave it to them to experience the finding and I find my surprise when I leave the hospital the eyes of my heart squinting in the bright light of my life and all is as I left it. The amazing fact that I am here living this ordinary life and the graceful presence spreads like yellow paint on wet paper lifting up the horizon.
