Yeah... I went in for a 30-minute outpatient surgery... not a big deal... supposed to go home an hour or two later.

I awoke admitted to the hospital after 2.5 hours of surgery... with another one scheduled for the next day. Some very unexpected seriousness to my being.

So, here I am (having been medically housebound for the past two weeks, with only a little bit more to come... I hope!) and shooting on the final day of the challenge.

My idea for my image is that we go... and our life is trailing out behind us. Little bits of "us" left there. But, we go on...

The past is mostly pretty, but broken by time, and...

The next part is just ahead!



Four minutes of shooting in the driveway with the garage door as a backdrop, then back to my chair with both of my post-surgery drain bags dangling and still happy. Win!
