The 87 steps

The spinal crisis alluded to in my previous post began here, leaving me literally crippled with pain and barely able to reach the help I needed, but today I almost danced up the 87 Playfair Steps during a four mile hike up and down and round and round the old town, with never even a twinge to remind me of the recent days when I could barely move. It is strange how quickly things can go terribly wrong, and how quickly they can all get better again, and not just with spinal cords and backbones. There again, things can also go terribly wrong and then quickly get much worse. Today though, I was walking towards the light.
