Thank you, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, let me not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

I walked a mile yesterday evening with no ill effects. Gosh but it feels good to get out.
But still feeling decidedly strange overall. Gotta love all those steroids they pumped into my spine.
Pain levels are about the same but I am able to do a lot more.
Thank you, keight, for reminding me to be careful and give myself time to heal. :heart:
Spine injections Friday went well. Range of motion is improving. Things are a bit squirrelly while we let the injections stabilize.
Finished the roll on my walk yesterday. Expect to start scanning this evening. Progress.Img 20170112 143516 by pearwood
Out for a walk with M'Lady. First since November. My hip is a bit sore, but not badly. It was well worth some soreness to get outside in the open air. I took the same photo with the Yashica-D.Img 20170111 150223 by pearwood
Talked to the spine center doctor this noon.  He says last Wednesday's MRI shows a herniated disk putting pressure on two nerve areas. We scheduled a spine injection for this Friday, with another round to follow in four weeks. We shall see.

Appreciate your kind words and the favorites.  Hope your recovery from back problem is daily improving!  As time passes and our bodies respond to that reality it can seem both natural and surprising.  Our inside "spark" does not seem to recognize the external time passage...perhaps making our art is a way to express that.
