New knee

This time the knee replacement is quite challenging. Very painful and I hope it's teaching me patience and tolerance. I don't know what lessons pain is supposed to teach but it leads to all sorts of philosophical questions. Sometimes it just leads to 'OUCH!!'.

This is from a new series called Roadside Attractions. I'm attracted to the shadows and random bushes and flowers along the side of the road. I have a whole folder of these odd shots. It's so fun to paint the various colors of grasses and I like the composition. I don't know if others will like it, but I do.

Friday, October 12 by this time, I will have a new right knee. I have excitement, hesitation, and a little bit of dread. I know when I heal it will be great, but the first two weeks are a big challenge. Fortunately, my terrific husband, Fred will stand by me and guide me through it. My left knee was operated on and replaced on July 19 and it's really quite wonderful for only being 3 months out.
