Gert is home after having a shot of cortisone to the shoulder. The specialist told him not to expect much for 2 to 3 days. Fingers crossed this is the beginning of a cure, as he's been in pain a long time.
Jess is out of surgery and they're waiting for the doctor to let her come home. I can't even imagine how it must feel to have 4 wisdom teeth removed but we have a freezer full of good quality ice cubes, and there are the popsicles too. She has her very own Flemish bloke with her there.
Inge raced in to spend some time with me this afternoon, only to race out about 10 minutes after meeting, as a small family emergency called her home. It wasn't serious in one way but it couldn't be ignored in another. We'll try that Antwerp city tour again, if possible. Meanwhile she's invited me to visit her in her Westhoek world. That would be her Flemish childhood home ... as, these days, she's a fulltime resident of New Zealand.
It's been an intense few months but today signaled a change in direction. I'm working on something a bit special and hope to mount a photography exhibition here in October. More news to follow with regard to that.
Meanwhile while Jess recovers from tooth abscesses and surgery I'm back on the trams 4 hours a day, not enjoying the heavy pollution we have here but having fun with Little Miss 10.
So yes ... it's like that.
The image below was taken at Cooks Beach in the Coromandel. Early one New Zealand morning when I was out wandering alone.
Well yes ... I am having fun with the new set of photography borders and tool kit they come with. Thank you.
