Perspective, always perspective

Simply by living the lifestyle of some adulated rock star recently, I successfully aggravated my physical condition.  In short, my gout flared.  This time in my right ankle.

Gout is a form of arthritis usually brought on by poor diet and being overweight (yep, yep).  I won’t bore you with the details, there are reams and reams of articles on the subject.  Suffice it to say it can be excruciating, as was this bout.

I landed in the guest room of the house, completely bed ridden.  Let me just say that Laurie keeps a magnificent guest room.  I now type (day three, almost healed) sitting up and watching the snow gently fall on this pristine scene.


You know, for being stuck in bed with a painful foot a guy could do a lot worse.  ~TH~
