You guys know how much I liked quality black-and-white photography, and this morning I’m putting up two of my all-time favorite b & w photos. I especially like the one to the left here, and not only because the young man’s beautiful, but because of the way the photographer caught the way water was flying off the young man’s head, and also because of the grin on the model’s handsome face. Superb …. 🙂
I went to bed rather early last night. I read a book for a while before my eyes grew drowsy, and then I killed the lights. I woke up this morning around 7:30, and got myself out of bed. I shaved and made my bed, and got myself dressed. I brewed coffee and made breakfast, then got busy at the keyboard writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress.
Now it’s around 10:30, and I am done writing for the day. Outside it’s warm and humid, as an approaching cold front is sucking up pressure from the south. A fairly stiff breeze is blowing from the southeast, and right after I finish this post, I will take a three-mile walk, here on the island, for some exercise.
Three weeks ago, I had a medical procedure performed on my left hand that left it swollen and sore. As a result, I have not goner to the gym since. Instead, I have done a lot of walking for exercise. But this afternoon, after I have lunch, I will visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. It’ going to feel good to get back into my exercise regimen, and to see all my friends I enjoy talking with whenever I’m working out. I’ll have to take it easy on my hand, of course, but I am sure I’ll be fine.
Have a nice Monday, friends, wherever you might be today. 🙂
