John, you're on an emergency room bed? I hope all's reasonably well, at least.

John: I removed the two commas and “yes” while lying here on my emergency room bed. Seemed an obvious change from here.

When you recover feel free to have second thoughts.... But hey -- Revising poetic thoughts while lying in an emergency room can only mean your vitals are stable...
Seriously, my thoughts go out to you. Be good to yourself. Rest. Hang low. Watch the river flow.

Hey John,

I, too, hope you're OK. Let us know.

And I like this one. It's a vivid vignette and it has the quality of a fable whose moral is tantalisingly elusive. Something about the slippery nature of authenticity or the way we regard others but don't have the ability to look at ourselves in the same way. Got me thinking.

Look after yourself!

Thanks Jim and Mark. I'm happy you like it Mark. I appreciate you reading.

I'm still in the hospital. They've promised I can leave tomorrow so I can be at Duke Hospital on Friday. I'm hoping they don't keep me. My lungs are dying faster than I am but they still aren't sure why. Thanks for asking.
