QUINN   Luxury is a fool’s compensation.  But unlike most of you idiots, I expect to get paid today.

A TANTRUM OF CLOWNS (Aborted play I wrote circa 2006)

It’s become glaringly apparent to me that the longer I go without writing here (or even tweeting for that matter), the more people automatically assume the worst.  Yeah, I totally get it.  I’ve spawned a baby monster.  Something completely dependent on me that must be fed and tended to or will start roaring maniacally…

Maybe this is a good thing.

So where do I even begin?  I was discharged from Swedish on Thursday.  The recovery, however, has been ongoing.   Some of it has been so abrasive and unpleasant that the idea of writing about it seems like devouring thumbtacks or reliving Chinese water torture.  Also, writing and consistently blogging about my health, while informative to the people I love and are invested in my recovery seems 100% counterintuitive now that I’m actually feeling better, so forgive me if it’s the last thing I want to do right now.

Instead I’m going to post photos of waterfalls…

I took these with the new Canon Powershot I got over Christmas.  I’m no photographer, but it’s a GREAT camera — I don’t care what anyone says!  Dad and I drove to Snoqualmie Falls over the weekend, which we’ve been meaning to do for weeks now and proved to be completely worth the acrophobia-inducing drive, even if I could barely sustain enough breath to climb the stairs to the viewing deck.

But I did, and that was two days ago.  And two days can seem like an awfully long time, don’t you think?

Let’s just see what the next two days bring… I am finally looking forward to seeing how it unfolds myself.
