Life as I see it

"but maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be."
Don Quixote from Man of LaMancha

Even though I really like the movie and story of 
Don Quixote, the Man of LaMancha, and his madness that refuses to let him see anything but the good and how he managed to change lives because of it; there are times when it helps to see life as is it.  This is how I'm going to see life for the next month or so, with my feet up and in a walking boot.  I broke my foot yesterday.  It was a stress fracture.  It seems that in spite of the fact that I have been feeling better and doing more than I have been able to do for quite awhile; I need to keep in mind that my body is still fragile.  Sometimes it helps to keep in mind the realities of your life so you can take care of yourself and not get hurt.  However in spite of my setback I still believe that you should concentrate on how life should be, can be or is going to be.  Because of this belief I'm going to show you photos I took Wednesday when I was feeling good.  I arrived early for a doctor's visit and so I went to the walking park at the hospital. Where I went for a walk and to take pictures

It is a pretty little park, that is a delight to visit.  I like going there when I have a doctors appointment at the hospital.  It always lifts my spirits to see this kind of beauty next to a place of healing. This is the park where I took the photo that I edited and turned into my avatar.


BTW: The DVD of the movie Man of LaMancha is available through Amazon; just go to the Amazon search button on the top right of this blog and type in Man of LaMancha.  It always amazes me at all the things you can find there.

Sorry to hear about your broken foot -- that sucks big time! Oh well, rest it well and may it heal quickly.

Hi Johnina,

I'm so sorry to hear about your foot fracture. I hope it heals quickly too. My SIL had a knee fracture in October and ended up with osteo-necrosis where the blood supply was cut off from the bone due to the fracture and the bone started to die. She must now be in a wrap-around splint and basically sit on a chair all day because she's not allowed to put any weight at all on it while the bone heals. She has to do this until March when the bone will be checked again. Such a pain!

Loved your photos!

I've made note of the movie. Thanks.

Rest up and heal quickly,

Sorry to hear about and see your foot. The switched off TV screen had me wondering what your post would be about. However the photos of the park show what a nice place it would be to while away some time.

That looks a really lovely park - but you take care of your foot and don't put it under any more stress!
