as many of you know, i’ve been rehabbing my dog and over the past few weeks and i want to let you know that he has improved immensely. he continues to sleep most of the day and is reticent to climb stairs, but now is able to stand up and walk around with minimal assistance. this is tremendous progress and a really huge relief for us. it has been a difficult road and our routines have been tossed to the wayside so we can help him recover. next week the experiment of leaving him for a few hours at a time will begin. since i did not leave the house for ten days straight, this is going to be a welcome change for me. i have missed being able to go out and take my photographs, play my sports and see people. i’ve also missed writing any best of the week posts for a while now, so let’s get back up on the horse and take a look at some of the most popular posts from the past week or so. as always, feel free to click around on the photos or links for more info on these great artists and items:

in a strange way i think my being housebound helped me to focus more on writing here. when i am able to go out and run this household it tends to keep me away from the computer and the number of posts falls down, much to my chagrin. this website is as much of a creative exercise and commitment as anything else, and i don’t like it when that happens, but you know how it goes. if i am anything, i am thorough, so hopefully i will be able to balance it all next week. we’ll see. in the meantime i wish you all a happy weekend and thank you for stopping by and writing your comments and emails. i have enjoyed hearing from you this week. a lot. stay tuned for some great interviews with fascinating people and more lovely things next week!
