Another Saturday night at home.
My eye is sore. My foot is bleeding from a fall. My glasses are bent.
Life is (almost) good.
These are the challenges that age brings to writers.
Some people learn the first time. Others, need to loose everything two...maybe three times, to get the message.

In the world of healing, the eye issue I commenced the year with is progressing, slowly.
In other news, Google and their Google Plus platform is going away. Not such a big deal for me, however, it now requires another review of every web post made as the Google + option is put to bed.
For others, the closure on 2 April 2019 means that their social media platforms now moves across to the others. I use Facebook anda little Twitter - but not enough to link to at this stage.
Goodnight Google Plus.

First Fans will be aware that the month of January has not been...favorable. Aside from the surgery, sleep has been hard to come by with the discomfort. When conjoined with Dad's health, it has not been a glamour start to the year.
February does not appear to hold much in the way of glamour either, as the follow ups to the vision and surgery proceed.
Here's hoping that these visionary issues can be resolved in a timely manner so I can get back to the writing and publication.
For the First Fans, thank you.

Since the surgery, the eye has been healing - thank you.
There was one small scare when an internal stitch not removed, made it's way through the eyelid and began to scratch at my eye. Minor impact and resolved quickly.
Today, January 26, is Australia day, the birth of my home country. In years gone past I spent the day sailing at a regatta. This year I spent the day tending to the wounds of another family member and stitching up some other deficiencies.
No pies. No fireworks. No celebrations.
If my Citizenship comes through in the next twelve months, I may have missed my last Australia day.

Friends, Family and Followers,
The last 45 stitches have been removed and the results are:
- I get to keep my eye sight.
- I do not need reconstructive surgery.
A legacy of the Australian lifestyle, I am grateful to Suzi for vigilance of "the small dot" on my face, and to daughter Jillian, who while I was away at dad's, was the voice of reason to her mother when the prognosis came.
For the Limelifers, starting One Drop Wonder means "eye will see you" in Denver

The First Fans are aware that, the past Christmas and New Year I was...damaged goods. A lack of sight following surgery inhibited my reading, and my writing. The damage caused by a childhood is now starting to catch up with the adult me.
Rest assure, that as of today, with the partial return of sight, the road to recovery is improving.
Still damaged goods, with a slight repair.
Welcome to XXMVIII.
