I scheduled the lumbar MRI for next Wednesday afternoon, January 4, thus getting 2017 off to a good start.

A blessed Christmas to one and all.
Walk in love.
Live in light.
And never lose hope.

Spine Center appointment yesterday morning went well. Next step is a spinal MRI then, assuming it shows what they expect, an injection in the spine to quiet the angry nerve.
Tuesday, December 13
The hip and spine problems that surfaced last month are officially a life-changing event. I am giving my regular features and contests a break while I concentrate on rest and healing and generally getting my life in order, like scrambling to make the full-time to retired and part-time transition six months earlier than planned. (I had planned to switch in June when I turn 67.)
I'm still very much here, just not trying to do so much or follow as much.
I have a Spine Center workup scheduled for Wednesday, December 21, after which I should have a better idea of what's next.
My friends who have been there assure me there is life after pinched nerves, even active and productive life. We shall see. I don't mind the wheelchair, but I have a whole lot more walking I want to do.

Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
- Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
- Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
- Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
- Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
- Ask the artist how or why they did something.
- 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.
