Down but not out

The Convalescent

Well, the main difference is that I'm piled up in bed with my laptop rather than a book at the moment.

As some of you know, I have been felled by shingles. Not pleasant.

And so I give you this to think about:

Illness is the most heeded of doctors: to goodness and wisdom we only make promises; pain we obey.

--Marcel Proust

Isn't it interesting how that works? I, for one, am pondering it.


  1. So sorry you have been in pain Ellie...wishing you Godspeed in your healing.
