A really good everyday curry- the only curry recipe you'll ever need because it's so versatile, adaptable, and simple.

It was my mom’s last radiation therapy appointment and I had wanted to be there with her to hear the doctor’s thoughts on her follow-up cancer care.  We were running a bit behind and as I quickened my pace to hurry on ahead, I fell.  Hard.  Terribly and frighteningly hard.  Face first apparently, although I don’t remember the fall.  I remember the pain, and for a quick second I thought I might have become paralyzed.  The moment my mind regained consciousness I was unable to move a single muscle in my body.  To my relief, that feeling was brief.  The next thing I knew I was being whisked away to the ER for concussion treatment.  The bump on my forehead was about the size of a golf ball, but by some miracle the CT scan showed no internal brain injuries.  The whole experience shook me up, put things back into a healthy perspective, and I am overwhelmingly thankful.  Recovery has been a bit rougher than I had expected though.  While in the healing stage, there is to be no exercise, limited screen time, and a general carefulness not to overstimulate the brain.  I am continuing to struggle with lingering headaches and vision problems, but despite all of this, I am immensely grateful.
