Today (My post from exactly a year ago today)

I decided to go back into my archives and see what was there a year ago this date. I hoped it would be something more poetic:-) I may do this again from time to time. It's interesting to see. NOTE: By just changing the date, the post came forward in time with the old comments to it, now mixed with the new.

The post:


I'm still not sitting much at all and am still soaking, but the pain decreases each day, thank goodness. This morning I dragged my tripod out onto the patio to try to get a decent bio shot for publications, since the last one I really like, over by the ocean is two years old now. Did manage to get one and feel industrious, instead of slothlike. In this one, I'm trying to set the self-timer, but the camera went off. I have two bonded teeth with the bonding gone bad and with all that's gone on, I've had to live with two VERY yellow teeth up front for a while longer. You can see them if you look close enough. I'm still dealing with aging, too, so here I am, worts and all. No air brushing. No plastic surgery. Just jowling, sinking-with-gravity me:-)

Geoff Sanderson did it again and made another haiga for me. I have to say I like the photo better in this haiga than the one taken by my old camcorder. Thanks, Geoff! Yes, reaching for the future while rooted in today.

I may not get around to visiting as many blogs yet for a while, but I'll gradually do that, too. And thanks to all of you who've left caring messages. They mean a lot.

Glad you are at least getting around!

A great photo, Pris! And I'm so glad to hear you are on the mend.

Pris said...

Thanks, Michael...and I'm getting there.

Geoff Sanderson said...

Don't worry Pris - you're looking great; who was it who said 'We have nothing to fear but fear itself'?

Pris said...

I know you will resist, but I do see a resemblance to your beautiful Mother in that face!

Pris said...

mouse..that's the nicest thing anybody could say.

Looking good Pris and I'll argue the odds with anyone who says otherwise. Smiles.

The way I'm going I'll have a toothless smile next year...knowing my luck. Keep them teeth.

Pris said...

Iknow what you mean. I have so little tooth under the bonding that the last dentist almost went to caps, so I'm not going to chance having them drilled unless it becomes absolutely necessary.

Annie Wicking and Loman Austen said...

You are looking good, girl... Now just keep it up and remember always to smile...:-)

Best wishes

Annie

Gosh...is that really 12 months ago? Yes, it is.
Ellen dashes off to count the additional wrinkles that have developed over the last 12 months...phew!
You look great Pris, then and now,so no worries...have a great week-end.

steve said...

That is a beautiful confidence!

Pris said...

Hi guys
I can see that by redating the post, the old comments come forward with it. If I do this again, unless it has photos, which are hard to find again, I'll copy/paste so it doesn't get confusing. Ellen, find any more wrinkles? lol
