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.
