Plans for this years travel have suddenly crystallised themselves into a very much smaller scale operation.
The trip up north was shortened because of some body problems, mine to be precise. After a ten day rest up tried again in the UK at the beginning of June to fulfil some obligations and have a semi family meeting.
This too was broken off earlier than planned. Again due to body problems which far from being a sciatica attack as initially diagnosed, turned out to being the result of a sneaky advance in age. Turned out I had a spinal stenosis. I'll make it a short story of it, three weeks after this diagnosis it had been operated on, I'm now out and about, sort of. Have to wait out six weeks to see if I will regain full motor control and can start physiotherapy. Limping around like a bloke with one leg shorter than the other at present.
All I can say I'm glad that this did not hit me earlier in life. Know someone it did. Respect to you sir, love you!
Anyway not much I can do to change anything so have been amusing myself with making some images around the central area of Düsseldorf. I shall post these before the end of the week My favourite will be on the Home tab and the rest are to be found in the Galleries in colour and B&W versions under the Buildings and B&W tabs.
