  1. Hi Thomas and hi John: I’ve been through quite a bit lately. I’ve promised a number of people an account—but I don’t think I’m up to it right now. Anyway, the short version: I had the surgeries for Deep Brain Stimulation. After the second one I had two seizures and an embolism that came close to killing me. As a help for the Parkinson’s the DBS was only partially successful. It decreased the tremor in my right arm (which is a big thing, that tremor was taking over my whole existence) but it has left my balance precarious. I’m doing a lot of therapy, but so far it remains problematic—and frankly is doubtful whether I will ever walk again. (Not to be too melodramatic: I can get around with a walker.)
    Anyway I survive. And I am thankful for that.
    I will be getting back to reading your poems, but because of my poor typing skills, my commentary will be curtailed.
    I’m glad you like the picture. Painting has been a comfort to me, and I get lucky once in a while.
    Jim

  2. I like this Jim. The colours of autumn (whoops – I mean the colors of fall). I particularly like the space in the middle through which the eyes may gaze at the Beyond and the way in which by contrast the darker tones are up front and in your face. Now … you can tell me I’m over-analysing!
