A Stronger Backbone - Intensive Care Unit

A STRONGER BACKBONE

08 May 2018, Pepino

The backbone of surprise is fusing speed with secrecy.
General Carl von Clausewitz

Three weeks ago I went through a neurosurgical discectomy, a removal of three herniated discs that pressed my spinal cord. Before the operation I was in a perfect shape but the doctors said that it was a miracle I still had precision in my hands. They couldn't believe that my profession is to make detailed drawings. I agreed to act before it was too late.

Now I'm learning to be a couch potato by medical prescription. I could watch all films and read all books I ever wanted but I find it painful to concentrate. This would be the best time to be painting in my crummy studio when it's neither freezing cold nor boiling hot. Yet it's the best season to wear the uncomfortable cervical collar too.

Few more weeks rest and I'm going to be stronger than ever - now enhanced with titanium stabilization system of the backbone.
