It’s a shallow life that doesn’t give a person a few scars.

~ Garrison Keillor,

By that definition, I have had a very deep life indeed. This post has been inspired by my daughter in law Manjiree noticing some scars on my head and arm asking me about how I acquired them. I recalled some to the best of my ability but some, I just could not. I did tell her about the others elsewhere on my body under clothing including the very big ones on both my hips, the result of surgery for hip replacements and revisions.

A misspent youth is one explanation but another more interesting one that buttresses the quote from Keillor, is what my friend Nisha came up with on a post on her Facebook wall.
