Welcome to the weekend. Welcome to my iPhone art- Saturday link up s~A(R)T~urday!
“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” Salvador Dali
What can I say? I don’t want to sound like a broken record, repeating myself over and over. So, no apologizing for being absent. For not commenting. For not posting. For not being actively present on the internet. It has been one of those weeks. It started with a visit of our CEO and CFO from Europe to do an internal audit. Needless to say – a little nerve wrecking. But all went well – as far as I know.
Thursday I had the follow up with my doctor to discuss the results of the MRI from the previous week. Well, not a big surprise to her or my PT. But to me, it kind of sunk in that ‘when I do something, I do it well’. So, yes, it is a comminuted fracture in two places and yes, it is a sprain of my ankle. No problem, right? That is what I thought at least. Yes, it will heal, with time, a lot of time apparently. It has been three months, 12 weeks already and I am still not back to normal. Actually, fairly far from it.
I finally took the time and looked into sprains and things and translated everything, too. It turns out that a sprain is a torn ligament (Bänderriss in German). What is torn? It is my ATFL that is torn, a grade 3 sprain, which takes up to 6 months to completely heal and another one grad 1. Fun. What is even more fun is that some cartilage also got damaged due to the impact. And all of this makes it way more possible (probable?) that I will develop post traumatic arthritis at some point. Especially if I am unlucky enough to injure the same spot again. Meaning wearing an ankle brace from now on when I e.g. go hiking. More fun.
In any case, I still consider myself lucky, because I got the correct treatment right away and I did not need surgery and I am in good physical therapy. It will be a while and by the looks of it not this summer that I’ll be back running, but, I am back on my bicycle. And tomorrow will be a nice day and we’ll be out and about again, getting a little bit back in shape.
With other words, the week flew by, and no photos were taken or harmless bystanders harmed in the process. But – now I’m back and I did have time to do some iPhone art. You know during PT when e.g. at the end I’m icing my foot or on the stationary bicycle. All good spots and time to exercise that iPhone and some apps of mine. Here my the latest one, all iPhone and the texture was made with Citra Solv and an old National Geographic.
Last weeks last entry at s~A(R)T~urday was NatureFootstep’s entry. As the name implies, she has a lot of gorgeous nature photographs to show. And sometimes she decides to digitally filter, alter them! Well worth visiting every week: NatureFootstep!

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done.
Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.
While they are deciding, make even more art.”
