I've been writing online for thirty years. One of these days I might actually get good at it.

    Falling behind

    I'm getting to the point where just keeping up is beyond my dwindling capacities. I'm not sure what's going on, but I suspect I'm not going to like it when I find out.

    Anyway, I apologize for having been such a lousy correspondent this year.

    Having gone wandering off somewhere

    Of late, I seem to have been overtaken by events: my health has taken a turn for the worst, I wrecked my car, and the guy they hired to help me out at work has moved away. (Another guy has drawn the short straw.) I'm still alive, but it's not something I much feel like bragging about.

    A night at the beer garden

    I mean, I'm not allowed beer anymore, at least not until I get off some of these damnable medications, but our little table had massive fun discussing Jenga, photography, classic and modern weaponry, beer (of course) -- and ponies. Apparently they'd read my stuff. Who knew?

    Regular visitors will remember that I'd asked the estimable LeekFish to knock out a sketch for my, um, OC. I posted it here, and it was well received; our own Twifight Sparkill came up with an idea, and heck, there's no reason you shouldn't see it here, especially since she's revised it to give me a more, um, scholarly look. (The LeekFish original is still in the sidebar at

    Back in the Real World

    I think I would rather spend two weeks in the Everfree, trying to avoid everything that can kill me, and in the Everfree I assume everything can kill me, than one more minute in a hospital room.

    That said, their definition of "on the mend" doesn't quite coincide with mine.

I'm very happy to hear you're free of the hospital, Dusty. I hope you're being looked after. I hope you're comfortable and okay. I really, really do.

:heart:

Still a tough road to hoe, but I've survived this far. The trick, apparently, is giving no thought to why.

The road has led you into a comfortable and healing realm, I do so hope.

"The trick, apparently, is giving no thought to why."

I have some very personal beliefs regarding this train of thought. I mean, news hasn't ever done much good beyond warning folks of disasters or large objects heading towards Earth - bad medical news? Um. I sort of tread on the side of "if it's finally broke and I can't fix it", I relent.

I just want you to be okay, of course. I care about you, Dusty.

:heart::heart::heart:

P.S.: I hope my blogging about gathering well-wishers isn't a bad thing.

Best of luck getting back to your old self, bud. Unless your old self didn't feel very good, in which case, best of luck getting to a better state. State Farm.

I was okay through about mid-May. Things started going downhill after that, and eventually 911 was called. Hospitalized for not quite three weeks, which seemed like not quite three years. I'm back at work, albeit on limited duty.

I am assured that the surgery went well, and indeed the general area is healing up nicely. The problem, of course, is that it was spinal surgery, and nerves are the slowest-healing body parts. It may be a year or so before I stop having side effects. (And I'm already Very, Very Old, which doesn't help.)
