ON VACATION

After several months of severe and more or less unrelenting pain, I am now on a low dose of prednisone, and the pain has lifted.  It makes me feel a trifle giddy, as though I were on vacation.  I still owe you all the second part of my meditation on analytic philosophy, journal articles, dissertations, and such, and although I am not an expert on the grotesque in art, I ought to say something about the bizarre reality show being staged by the Republicans in the House of Representatives.  However, today I am just goofing off and enjoying the fact that I don 't hurt.

I shall attempt to return to my customary seriousness tomorrow.

The arts don't progress like the sciences. None the worse for it, no?

I'm happy to hear that the prednisone is helping with the pain. The jittery feeling is a very common side-effect (I've experienced it myself). If it becomes too bothersome, you might suggest to your doctor to try a slightly lower dose of prednisone and see if that still helps the pain without making you as jittery.
