Incapacitating Pain

At this point in my life, the level of pain that I am experiencing on any given day determines what I do and what I don't do, that and fatigue because of inadequate sleep. The pain in my back is often incapacitating. It is complicated by an unresolved (unresolvable?) medical issue that causes moderate to acute pain; when the latter, I am unable to do the stretching exercises that ease the pain in my back. When I've exerted myself physically today, I have felt moderate pain. Earlier, I made a comment on Kathy's blog about the importance of consistency. It is time for me to get off of my comfortable reclining brown chair and do the exercises that I CAN do today.

The Beauty of Pollination

If you haven't seen this video, you OWE it to yourself to see it.  In slo-mo, it shows bats flying, hummingbirds twirling, butterflies leaving their cocoons and later mating, iridescent insects deep in flowers feeding.  This is an AMAZING video.
