Turtle Time

A slow and steady progress has always worked best for me. Desiring results in an instant was an earlier downfall in life. I had to learn to be happy in the day. The overall picture takes time.

I am nursing a sore area, in my lumbar. I will call it a soft tissue injury. I went to see my chiropractor yesterday afternoon. That was my third visit, since I felt the pull nine days ago. I will get a massage today.

Not that I would ever want an injury, however, they do happen.

Mentally, I’ve adjusted. Now it takes time.

This was on the wake of Hurricane Irma back home, in Florida. We had just survived that near disaster.

Almost six months have gone by, and it’s time to pack up and leave again. Continue reading “My Endless Summer”
