    Appendectomy souvenir

    Recent scar just under my daughter's belly button from key hole surgery to remove her appendix last month.

    Okay, a bit gross, but it's a souvenir she'll keep for the rest of her life!

    BLUE BLOOD

    In this picture you see my sweet ex soul mate lying in a hospital bed after an appendectomy. He had always demanded a lot of attention (according to his theory, I owed him everything just because he sincerely loved me), and during his stay in a hospital was particularly peevish about me not devoting enough of myself to him (in every possible sense). I looked at him during the first visit and realized that now, in broad daylight coming into the room thru a huge window and in the sterility of the hospital environment, his lordly demeanour was so visible that it was almost impossible to look at him.

    Adrienne Augarde

    A postally unused Photinotype Series postcard published by Palatine Pictorial Co. Ltd. of Manchester.

    Adrienne Adele Augarde (1882 - 1913) was a British actress and singer who was popular for nearly a decade on both sides of the Atlantic, primarily for her roles in Edwardian musical comedy.

    Adrienne began her career in 1898 in pantomime before gaining wide popularity playing leading roles in the popular musicals produced by George Edwardes.

    After starring in a number of long-running productions in London and New York from 1903 to 1912, Adrienne embarked on an American Vaudeville tour. During the tour, she fell ill and died from pneumonia after a failed appendectomy, at the age of 30.

    After cremation her ashes were sent to her mother in a silver urn resembling a make-up box.

    On the Joy of Exercise

    I've recently been agonising, even more than I usually do, about what constitutes the good life. I made a list of the things that make me happy, ordered them in terms of importance, and made the sobering if unsurprising discovery that what I had deemed to be my priorities in life were largely not reflected in the amount of time, effort or money I spend on them. Looking at the first two items on the list I made, it seems I'm in agreement with Freud when he said that "love and work...work and love. That's all there is." Both of these are very wide terms, of course: if we take love to mean human (or animal) relationships, then we can subdivide it into friends, family, colleagues, pets, lovers. I can think of work, too, in many ways: is taking a stroll after dinner with my camera work in the same way as doing my taxes is work?

    Among the things that make me happy, I realised that in doing each one there is also scope for regret: in love ("I wish I hadn't spent months pursuing a relationship with that person; I wouldn't have bothered visiting my family today if I'd known it would be constant arguments and nagging"), in work ("that assignment was more trouble than it was worth; I wish I'd taken the other one I was offered"), in food ("I'll never eat at this restaurant again; that fish supper tasted great, but now I have indigestion"). These examples are of course just manifestations of the uncertainties and insecurities of being a human being and engaging with life, or are about the line we have to tread between self-denial and self-indulgence, discipline and recklessness.

    Perhaps the most surprising thing I learned, looking at the list in that context, is that there is an exception: exercise. I manage to get to the gym three or four times a week. Once a week or so, I'm able to summon the willpower to drag myself out of bed and get there for the opening time of 7am. To do so, especially in the cold and dark of a Scottish winter, is a huge effort of will - how easy to spend another three hours wrapped in the warmth and comfort of this duvet! - but to do it is to immeasurably improve the quality of my day: to feel mentally vitalised by the exercise, as well as to know that I've done my body good both in health and appearance, and to find myself in that state by 8am. In short, it makes me very happy. I have NEVER regretted getting out of bed at 6am and going straight to the gym. No matter how difficult I found it, no matter how strongly I felt like not doing it, I have never said "I shouldn't have bothered"; rather, whenever I do, I invariably say "I'm so glad I did that."

    So the first resolution I make from having carried out this exercise (no pun intended) - having realised that exercise is one of life's few unfettered joys - is to get out of bed at 6am and get to the gym on more weekday mornings than not.

    appendectomy

    To all my regular Flickr friends and viewers. Apologies for my absence in the past few and coming days. Early on Saturday morning rather unexpectedly my appendix burst and I had to undergo an emergency appendectomy. It was rather painful but thankfully I was released from the hospital today and currently recovering at home. Hopefully I will be back up to speed and shooting again soon.

    Regards, Patrick
