Well, looks like we have a reason for my heart trouble. Seems I had a virus that caused the sac-thingy around my heart to become inflamed, and that I’m healing up slowly but surely.
Today I thought: “I’ve got a couple hours, so after work I’ll take a bike ride.” I put the bike on the back of the car and went to work. Then it rained for the following four hours.
By the time I finished, the sun was shining slightly through a break in the clouds, but I was having none of it. The rain had brought in a wind storm, and the wind was freezing cold. I was wearing my white pants and cute crocodile-print Topsiders with no socks. Nope.
But this week calls, and perhaps the weather will allow me to venture out again.
In other news… So… I quit my own company. Actually, there just weren’t enough folks signing up for trips, so I had to close it down. The insurance was too expensive to keep it up without more income. And really, let’s face it… I miss teaching. It took me a while to realize that while my old job stank, that doesn’t mean teaching stank. So I’m off to the employment races. I have an interview lined up already, so wish me luck!
And sunshine. Lots of sunshine.
In the meantime, here’s a little Raleigh Retrospective of some of my favorite shots. Yes, I am jumping the shark. Why not? It’s my damned blog.
