I've just had the most painful three  of weeks of my life.
But went to bed last night with my sweatshirt on and the AC down to 75.
Instead of tee shirt and 72.
And woke up not wracked in pain in my legs for the first time in 3 weeks and
I got 8 hours of sleep not 5 or 4. I start Physical therapy Tuesday. I had
to cancel my Spring Lug Gallery gallery as normally I'd spend the morning
working on it and I've not been able to sit down for more than a minute till
the sun went down. My last entry was May 24th.
Its from lifting boxes in my storage cubical in Portland May 10th - 16th. I
got a glimpse of my body of work in the large boxes in the back and my pots
and my books. My CD' are ready to go; to be sent over here. I'll have them
here soon though not my negs still they were in the back of the room and I
didn't make it to there.
The lesson is - when you hit middle age or older:
Don't loose your inner core strength.
Do exercises in the morning like Ted has his whole life.
I'm getting a folding mat. And taking up Yoga and anything else which
resembles it. Then I'll make up my own.  Publish it and be asked to
demonstrate it on a radio show.
You never know how many cameras you may have to carry and what they'd all
weigh. The Leica lenses don't just cost more they also get heavier every

Summer is in ten days and I'll start and finish a Summer gallery. Picture a
day. From whatever year.
