This morning I cycled 22.1 miles on my Schwinn 170. My totals – 16,961.0 miles; 27,296.1 kilometers.
And I have to find a way to get rid of my gut. Any ideas, without a scalpel?
My journey location is still somewhere in Highbury, Queensland on the Burke Development Road. I crossed over the Lynd River which appears to be a tributary of the Mitchel River. 225 more miles to go to get to my next trek destination and goal point.
Today, my Morning Pages, I have now written a total of 500,375 words in 647 days. Each morning I write, with acknowledgement to Julia Cameron’s The Artist Way, 750 words.
It just is sort of a brain dump. It sometime is a to do list; sometimes a tada list. But today I surpassed the ½ million mark. Hey, it’s not a book. Just a couple of minutes each morning. And of course I do not use longhand as she suggests, I use 750Words.com.
Thanks TQ for suggesting the site to me. I am definitely more at ease these days using an electronic journal…and I save trees.
A very good article from The Washington Post by Alexandra Robbins – “Nurses make fun of their dying patients. That’s okay.”
I was a bit taken aback by the use of phrase. I just over-heard it, even though I was in what I considered "drastic and life-ending pain", I understood the colloquial use of "inner-sanctum" language.
This article brings back a number of memories, but one I will never forget while I lay on the ER bed, racked in what I believed to be the most excruciating of pain. I laughed at the nurse's choice of words...in a morbid sort-of way. Thank you all doctors and nurses who just take time to make me enjoy life. And for me avoiding the great plumber in the sky.
I update Quilts SB last night and included the construction and progress of our 128th quilt – Crystal. Check it out at http://quiltssb.com or at http://quiltsb.blogspot.com .
