. . . yup, the x-ray shows that foot really IS broken. Right through. But the bones are not out of alignment which is a good thing.
Expected 6-8 weeks for full recovery if I'm reasonably compliant.
Thankfully I can use one of those... Read more
I've got a left foot injury. Not as a result of any activity other than simply stepping down on it oddly after sitting on the verandah. It twisted, I heard a snap, it got pretty swollen -- and I went to the emergency clinic.
Such kind an... Read more
A couple of us are quietly ReBecking via Spark Messaging and it's so helpful to refresh the techniques.
Every Beck trek I seem to come at if from a slightly different angle -- presumably because I'm in a slightly different space.

Yes, I did not go into work yesterday morning -- and instead snuck out for an early morning kayak in the swamp. Paddling up stream to start (quite a current) and then drifting lazily back downstream to the starting dock.
It was a real wo... Read more

I don't know how much weight (pun intended) I'd attach to this research -- no women were included in the study, as is too often the case. ... Read more
Our dear old golden retriever -- 13 in May -- is not doing well.
His new pain meds prescribed about 10 days ago seemed to help. But yesterday before I got home from work he had what appears to have been a small seizure. Our vet has told u... Read more
The forecast for today had been thunder storms and so we figured it would be a good idea to sneak off to the golf course after work last evening.
And it was a truly gorgeous couple of hours: perfect temperature, that fresh cut grass smell, ... Read more

We tried the water lily swamp north of our golf course and it was lovely lovely lovely. Yes, we were clever enough this time to set out up stream: but truly there was not much current at all. Very shallow. This has been a summer of torrential... Read more
This question, "What if nothing is wrong?" (from Molly Larkin) seems to be my own take-away from the Bright Line Healing webinar -- I've been thinking about it a lot.
Back in 1982 I was an art history teacher. I attended at a gallery sho... Read more

So many Sparkies suffer from chronic pain. And the inclination to self-medicate with food can be immense and irresistible: even though packing on th... Read more
Stressful day (highly stressful day). And the antidote? Golf.
There is nothing like that lush green smell, the big sky and evening bird song.
Slept well. And woke up to a brand new day. Dear Charlie cleverly conceal... Read more
It was Civic Holiday weekend in Canada and that extra day off was certainly a treat! All the aches and pains from the first kayaking venture Sunday got worked out on the golf course yesterday -- and I'm thinking we may golf again tonight after ... Read more
Love the new kayaks.
What I had NOT anticipated -- how strong the current in a stream meandering through a swamp. I really did not recognize that we were being carried "downstream" pretty much effortlessly. So: 30 minutes out, 1.5 hours... Read more
