I’d like to say I’m in shape. I’m healthy, I don’t have much, if any, pain. I can run, climb the stairs, do manual labor… but I don’t necessarily exercise. I started a walking regimen around the neighborhood – I failed to keep it up. I think I did it for two weeks. But the […]

Pollen was floating along in the breeze,
