Another scary start?

Doctor exam room
Real life in real time. Walked to dermatologist. Waiting in exam room for this year’s third checkup.

Over-focusing on vibrancy allows you to be the last to feel negative events and the first to recover.


Gonna start “exercising” like a beginner tomorrow.

Atrophy doesn’t take long.

Blessed to have been in a physically vibrant state since 1999.

Now, 24 years later, it’s time to start over. Stopped working out (doctor’s orders) 11 weeks ago. That’s 77 days. Nothing.

i swore years ago that 10 days was my max. And that after 14 days, my body required a start over approach.

So yeah, 77 days.

Do the math.

i swore in 1999 that this was the last time i’d ever say, “i need to start working out.”

Never suspected a torn retina (simply from aging) could bring me to my metaphorical knees.

Yet here we are.

Note: Still have 60 days without incident before Dr. Kumar will feel like second surgery is a success.
