So, annoying semester. New full knee replacement TWO days before it started. Cane first two weeks with RL driving me up to school - he was so sweet. But then general pain for the run of the semester - and the students got the brunt. (I’ll do better in the spring, promise.) But with vigorous PT and eating correctly (my GP weighed<haha, in right after the operation with a meal plan and meds) I’ve had no time for art making. It’s all - exercises, stretch, eat right, then grade, grade, grade. Perhaps after finals, after the holiday trip home, and after a mini vacation - I will them make new innovative clever works. We shall see. SM
