Henry David Thoreau said heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads, meaning not only that the literal heavensspace and stars and galaxiessurround us, but also that if were to find any heaven it will be here, wherever we are. My here is hard, and for long stretches it has been difficult in the extreme. The title of this blog is a play on Thoreaus words. It refers to finding the good life in a hard place. Of all the pain that Ive had, which is a lot, the pain in my feet and lower legs has been some of the worstflesh-ripping and mind-numbing. I use my foot as a symbol in the title for the pain and difficulty of my illness. The joy and the loss of my life cannot be understood separately because they arent lived separately; hence, Heaven in My Foot.
