Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
As a few of you already know 2015 has been my convalescing year.
First, recovering from emergency retina surgery (right eye) to start the year. (Still have some blurred vision).
In mid summer cervical spine surgery (C1-C6 for my medical friends). My Spine Fusion, the bolting of my neck with screws and plates reduced my head’s range of motion. This former astronomer wannabe lost the ability to look up. Sigh.
One day, recuperating in my living room, my daughter visited. Snatching my laptop, she worked furiously. She asked where I stored my favorite photos, the chimp at the typewriter and the my treasured beach photo. Moments later she returned the laptop. “Start writing.”
My first post on Sept 21st “Why the Lonely Author Blog” netted me one like and follower.
All the king horses And all the kings men Couldn’t put Lonely Author back together again
But his loyal followers certainly have. With every inspiring post you made, with every sweet word you wrote you helped my recovery.
With your comments you entertained, inspired, made me laugh and sometimes cry. Each of you picked up a piece of this broken man and with paper clips, rubbed bands, and bubble gum you made me whole again.
And for that I will be forever grateful.
(I know what you’re thinking. A serious post from Lonely Author. Ah-ha. You underestimate me!)
From the bottom of my heart and the heart of my bottom, I thank each and every one of you. I wish you and yours a happy happy, merry merry, and a joyed filled and healthy 2016.
