What do you do when you have a displaced acute phalanx fracture? You wait for 4 to 8 weeks for it to heal; hopefully properly. We all heal differently and I have to stop watching the calendar and let nature and my osteoblasts do their work. I also need to restrain myself from my usual habit of doing too much too soon so that I do not draw out the healing time. I say this because I am now 2 weeks into repairs and am happy to say that steps are no longer my mortal enemy. Going up has gotten better but coming down? Not as well. What does this mean? It means I can get back to my office and edit some new photos that have been languishing on the hard drive. Yippee!
To celebrate this small (but large to me) step towards footwear that doesn’t include velcro, I am celebrating by posting some of my favorite orchid shots. Such variety! Such beauty! I hope you enjoy them, your weekend, and if you partake in any Derby events I hope you post pictures 🙂
Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
