I've been out and about taking photos and walking a bit. There isn't a more beautiful time of year on Long Island than autumn. The weather has been perfect the past two weeks and the colors are in high gear.
I have hundreds of photos and I'm still experimenting with different photo programs. Here I attempted to blur a photo to achieve an impressionist painting effect. If you click on the photo, you can get a closer look at the effect.
My poems keep flowing out of the photography and the walks. I am working toward poems and images that compliment each other indirectly. Ideally, the relationship between the image and the poem is a subtle one.
My recovery from surgery is now complete and I can finally begin a real exercise program. It is a bit discouraging to have lost so much ground in such a short time but - I begin again. I will be posting- hopefully - about my progress in the future.
My plan is a simple one. I have to regain strength which I lost over the past several months. My legs are weak and I can feel the weakness every time I walk up stairs or stand up. I have a weight -lifting regimen I will be doing three times a week. On the other days I will walk. I am already able to walk a leisurely 2 miles so next I will concentrate on speeding up and then gradually increasing my mileage. Can't ask for better weather for walking!
Thought for today - Seize the Day! Or Carpe Diem as they used to say in the really olden days!
