Hello! This is my first post on a new blog about physical and mental chronic illness. I write about advocacy, living with the conditions, treatment, and related topics like healthcare policy.
My normal medium is instagram. Recently, I've wanted to write longer and longer captions. Instead, I started a blog. "Da capo" is a musical term meaning "from the beginning" (lit. "from the head") The term is often used after an interlude or bridge section, to indicate to performers to start the piece over from the beginning. In baroque opera, the da capo aria involves returning to the beginning and adding flourishes for artistic purposes or aesthetic flair. While I can't go back in time and start over completely, I can repeat what I did and add new details to improve my work and change its meaning.
Here's to evolution.
