first seen in post the ties that bind
as i thought about my blog, my art, and the necessity of my hands as collaborator to this online escapade, i took a little journey back through my journal and saw the literal inspiration these hands of mine have provided here.
yesterday i had a final injection attempt at remedying
de Quervain's Tenosynovitis without surgery.
If the injection works, we know the diagnosis is correct, which the clinical exam indicates.
i've already had surgery for it in my left hand. if the injection works, but pain returns, surgery will be necessary for my right. the pain has reurned once, so it's fairly likely this will be the outcome.
here's the rub - it's supposed to be a highly successful surgery,
and my left hand still has the same symptoms...

since i am unable to create at this time, i thought i'd share a look back at the way these remarkable bits of bone, flesh, tendon and nerve have served me,
and you, as observers of my work.

There have been many.
Hands in pain,
right from the beginning in
my 5th journal post 7/29/08

hands of hope,
hands in surrender,
these grateful hands.
They hold that bowl of the limitless Golden All
that you have shared with me with all your supportive
visits and words, filling me with encouragement and care
that i need and value more than you know.
much love, and many thanks,
I bow in thanks,
A revisit to my Hand Book,
