Now that is a tribute!Well penned - nice pictureHappy 55Moonie smiles
My Namesake!He was also a terrible quack and butcher. But back then...? Who Knew? Excellent 55 MM, I love Historical stories!Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...Galen
Hee hee hee! Of course a Galen would be thinking, studying and dreaming of anatomy! Mostly the female form I would hazard to guess. Great 55! And a wonderful History lesson too!
Very cool 55! They should teach kids with 55's. WOuld be more interesting than text books sometimes. ;O)Mine's up HERE
awesome tribute! :)
And all this time I thought there was only ONE Galen. ;)Nice 55, Monkey!-C
Great 55! I am amazed the the research that went into this piece. Teresa
Are you a published poet? You should be...surely you are, right?You're amazing. I sort of read with my mouth agape.
Commendable. And I guess he has a reincarnation! :D
Such a simple 55 and yet so profound. Well done MonkeyBoi!
Isn't it wonderful what we get lost in?swallowed by- never knowing or suspectingit might be a labor of love that would benefit others- Thanks.
I learned something here. When I purchace a Galen of milk I will be thankful for the anatomy that processes it.
Really neat 55, Monkey Man. I don't even Galen his work, but I'm glad he kept at it!
I like such perfect dedications ! nice !!
What an excellent 55. As a student nurse over 47 years ago, anatomy was one of my most miserable courses, phsyiology was even worse!
Okay, so I have plans for this morning but everything will have to be postponed while I Google Galen the Anatomist. The chores you place before me!The Straight Poop
Fantastic choice of subject! Nice 55
Interesting subject for a tribute...random?
Galen, not Copernicus? :)What an amazing talent to sculpt. I admire it so. And admire your words at once soft and deep.xo
I just want to know where you found his high school picture.
LOL "high school picture."He lead to what could arguably be called the most successful branch of medicine - surgery.
g-mans namesake - how nice! we need determined men like him in science and medicine and research...nice 55
Very clever...you got me!Have a good weekend!
stunning imagery,beautiful 55.
You are a word smith. Very nice.mine is http://faystoo.blogspot.com/2010/11/time-for-friday-flash-55-that-online.html
Wow!!! I was almost convinced you referring to "our" Galen, till I saw the picture! ;-) That was some cool wordplay there, MM...
Nice one. And a great tribute.
well deserved tribute! if it wasn't for wise Galen, how different things would've been!
When I saw the title, I thought it was a tribute to our own Galen, our gracious host! I got history instead. Well done! I love history, and it's definitely more memorable in poetic form.
Nice! Really liked "sinew"... Love how you say so much in just a few words.
I think you should create a textbook of all 55's.
awesome 55! when I saw the title I thought it was maybe about Mr. Knowitall, too, that is until i saw the "high school picture." Eric, u r a crack-up! great job, MM! See you sunday!
Can you imagine what that must have been like? Well, obviously you can. :-)
