Most of yesterday’s post was written online. It was quite the adventure. It was published before I had finished writing it. I had a copy in Word, but it was not complete. Moreover, I am not the only person writing my posts. Parts of my posts can be and have been removed by someone else.
Yesterday’s post lacks a formal conclusion, but it is fine as it is. Missing from the post is the name of a Danish scholar and a link to his publication: a booklet.
This morning I added links. One needs a link to Blanche de Castile and Louis IX.
We know that four Bibles moralisées were realized in France in the 13th century and that they constitute paradox literature. You may have noticed the feet of our depiction of Gods. They are nicely depicted if the side of a foot is drawn, but not if the front of the feet is depicted. Dimensionality had not been fully explored when our Bibles were illuminated and it remains somewhat problematical.
On a more personal but interesting note, I would like to tell you that I have recovered from myalgic encephalomyelitis after 44 difficult years. The problem started when I caught a virus in 1976, but ME was not diagnosed until 1991, after I underwent a SPECT scan at Mount Sinaï hospital in Toronto. I was told that my brain was damaged and that I could no longer lead a normal life. I chose to remain intellectually active as a university teacher.
ME disappeared quietly during the last eighteen months to two years. I cannot tell how it went away, but I can tell when my life started to change. It did after a strange three-month flu and voice extinction that triggered advanced emphysema. I had never smoked, not even one cigarette, and I am feeling quite well.
I apologize for rebuilding my post online. It took a long time because older versions would eliminate changes. Life can be strange.

There are always mysteries – but I suppose that body is trying to recover health, the normal way.
I am very happy to hear your good news. You had always hope and courage.
I cannot give the medical profession any information because it happened by itself. J’ai continué et soudain tout a changé. Il faut donc continuer de continuer. But it’s very strange. Amitiés 🙂
Indeed Micheline, life can be strange. I was just reflecting on that, with a friend a few minutes ago. 🙂
There are things one cannot explain. After 44 years and in the middle of a pandemic, ME has left. I feel blessed. 🙂

I’m very glad that you have recovered from ME. It has played you for so long. An article about ‘long Covid’ suggested that this new virus may be causing the same type of problem in covid survivors.

People who have been infected with Covid-19 are unlikely to recover fully. I don’t know what made me recover after 44 years. Thank you, Marilyn
I am glad to hear that you have recovered from ME. I am very happy for you, dear Micheline!
I did not think I would recover. I put a link to ME in my post, without reading it. I thought nothing had changed. Things had changed. People who suffer from ME/CFS are at greater risk of contracting the coronavirus. ME is difficult to deal with because it isn’t visible. Many doctors do not believe a person has ME.
That is really good news about ME. A late friend of mine had recurrent bouts during which I covered some of her work.
Derrick, after 44 years, recovering seems a miracle. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) has asked that people who suffer from ME not expose themselves to the coronavirus. The virus I caught was the H1N1, a less aggressive virus. I think I should tell my story to the CDC. Forty-four years is a very long time. I wish someone had covered my work. During an episode, you must rest. I had a mammoth courseload. In my case, there were no “episodes,” but a course in an area of knowledge I was not familiar with: beast literature. It would have been easy for my university to accommodate my needs. My colleagues knew I went to bed at 7 o’clock in the evening. This is how I managed to work. Thank you, Derrick. 🙂
