Just let it grow now mate. Concentrate on health and I'm sure the design will speak to you in time.
Plenty of Good options Imo.
One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful

Put it in a pot. Doesnt suit it but will do for now. Still along long way to go. While repotting it it had writing in the old pot at the bottom saying first repotted 1999. So not bad for an old tree in a pot for 15 odd bucks :-)m this tree just seems to fight me the whole time for a good style. Stubborn old girl i reckon.

Nice recovery on them Sammy :yes:
The olive, looks like a nice little Mother daughter twin to me, the shorter one on the left in the last shot.
Reduce or remove the upward pointing bit on that trunk IMHO
