"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

I'm watching this girl. Watching her as she changes every day. Watching her as she easily does something that was so difficult before..... watching her expressions as she accomplishes a task with ease. And I'm amazed.

This is Alina HEEL TO TOE walking three months after selective dorsal rhizotomy. (blogger wont' upload the video I want to use, so this one is not as good. :/)

Here is a post that shows her walking progression a little over a year ago.
