Whew! I can't tell you how angry I'd have been if I'd spent the final weeks of the world recovering from knee surgery. But it appears that we will blunder on a bit longer. Over the fiscal cliff? Maybe. Into a world of armed teachers and tots in body armor? Oh, I hope not.
The light is returning for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere -- may it illuminate our darkness and help us make a better world.
Meanwhile, in very local news: I cooked dinner tonight for the first time since my surgery -- Occupational Therapy at its best. Others did the dishes, I must admit. But, like the sun, I'm on the comeback trail!
