Why I was away…

on 12/10/2019

Some day I will tell you the entire story of the manuscript in the photo below, The Silver People. It was about 2 months after my SAH, burst brain aneurysm surgery, which I woke up from sightless, but kept writing and talking in both Croatian and English, sometimes simultaneously without knowing it. I cannot tell you the horrors our brains can create when afraid – when a simple path from your kitchen to your bathroom seems like heated lava spilling over Saruman’s orcs workshop in LOTR. The mind is a force of nature and we its minions. But faith, love and kindness are relentless, too. The mind is a force of nature.

So this is why I was away for a year. I’m coming back. I still have a lot to say and do.
