Through The Glass: Ongoing Treatments

“Do you know where you’re going to?

Do you like the life the world is showing you?

Where are you going to?

Do you know?”

Mahogany (1975 film)

This is my favorite song quote from the 1975 Diana Ross film Mahogany. It says a lot about my current situation.

As you can see I’m still using a walker. And as it turns out, I will soon be having surgery on my right knee; a total knee replacement. Hopefully my recent fall on my left knee will not require additional surgery.

Sorry that I missed my August posting, I’ve been very distracted due to my continuing health issues. I also have an update on my vision. I am now legally blind, but with my husband’s help I am able to continue to blog. The proton beam radiation treatment for my tumor has damaged my optic nerves, leaving partial degraded vision in the right side and no vision in the left. As you can guess, this has made photography challenging, but not impossible. I persevere! I have even heard of blind photographers. I will have to investigate their work.

Expect to see an update in a couple of weeks.

Big and little bandstands

Steel City Snapper photography

Two bandstands, both in Queen’s Park, Chesterfield – the same place I photographed the cricket field. At least I think they’re both bandstands – the second one is much larger and almost looks like a carousel with nothing to ride.

Perhaps in summer
The sound of a band may sound
Tiddly om pom pom

The Gap Band: A Tulsa Heritage

Most People outside of RAP don’t know the connection.  The GAP Band members were born, raised and started their Music career in Tulsa. 

The band is an acronym based on the streets of Greenwood, Archer, and Pine in the historic Greenwood neighborhood of the Wilson brothers’ hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Celebrate the Music. Remember the loss and play some GAP Today.

I remember first seeing these Mountains 30 years ago. On a recent trip through New Mexico we decided to stop by Las Cruces to see the Organ Mountains:
