All Talk and No Action Wednesday, July 20, 2011

...a punctured, collapsed lung that was leaking blood, a bruised heart, 14 or 15 broken ribs, a broken breastbone and ruptured spleen.
Her pelvis was fractured, as were both of her legs, and her right ankle had split off altogether. Her right shinbone had penetrated 12 inches into the earth. Most worrisome, Deborah was in a coma, with diffuse injuries to her brain and signs of contusion to her brain stem. Some of these injuries alone were life-threatening; taken together, they presented a grim prognosis.
A gripping tale of survival, determination, and, transient love. And of course, Karma or Luck (depending on whichever side of the fence you are on).

The human body never ceases to amaze me.  Its capacity to recuperate and rebuild itself is remarkable.
Though, I have known this  for years now, my Vipassana experience drove home this point even more lucidly.

The other day, a friend shared someone's account of Vipassana. A must read.
