The story resonates with me. I had a similar experience in 2012 when I hiked the PCT for 45 days. I had to pull off most of my toenails when they became bloody infected messes. My feet had all manner of acute blister pain which slowly morphed into a sort of heightened awareness over time. Pain was just one more sensation as it lost its emotional reactivity in me. What emerged was a witness of life. And after 30 days, one afternoon as I was trudging step after step up the old broad shoulders of the Tehachapi mountains, the attachment to "me" gave way and I suddenly felt the big "her". I was merely the eyes for something all inclusive. I was a part and the whole all at once. Rock on Sara, I love your thoughts and observations.
