I have quite the busy day today and I’m on a mission to get this body into better shape and fix this blasted shoulder and foot that have been causing me grief and keeping me away from the dojo. There are only so many physiotherapist and chiropractor visits a person can take before realising nothing is really working. So, I blew the dust off the old Wii and re-started the Yoga. Laugh if you will, I care not! It is a tool that is “forcing” me to slow down and take the time to stretch. I can barely run in running shoes – barefoot, forget about it (this is why the dojo is being ignored by me!) The shoulder pain is related to my fracture of over a year and a half ago! Goes to show how one learns to deal with an injury thereby causing another. Sigh… this getting older shit is really not fun! Healing is much slower than it once was!
What I was trying to say above, before my case of verbal diarrhea, is that I had to get my walk with Zeke in early so I was out of the house by 7:45 this morning! A vast improvement over the 9:00 it has been lately! I was hoping I was still in the “Magical Hour” so beloved by photographers (I dare to actually put myself into that group, albeit of the amateur variety!) and was not disappointed.
Zeke, my faithful companion doesn’t really care what time we go out, as long as it is OUT! Thought I’d share his most regal pose…
And off we went to the Industrial area – I know, again!
We had the usual stick throwing… Have I mentioned Zeke is NOT a retriever? His fun is to chase after a stick, and make like a beaver, until I get close enough and then it’s grab and dash and catch me if you can! Funny critter.
He is very patient with me as I practice what I learned in Joy Sussman’s on-line Photo Class – all the time! Lines, perspectives, macros…. Really, you should check out her site but clicking the link. She takes the most amazing photos!
Of course, I don’t spend ALL of my time with plants and things! When I can, I get up close and personal with Zeke…
Another nice walk with my dog. We should all be as exuberant as he!
