The New Year

Mission with Grasses
I am still mono printing like a crazy person! I just love these small prints with a mix of hand made masks and real plants. I think they work really well together and give the work some depth.

Lately I have been doing a lot of walking. I think I never mentioned that I fell off my bike after getting dizzy from over exertion. I was very lucky that I did not break anything. But I had enough scrapes and bruises to let me know that my body was trying to tell me something. It isn't the first time I have gotten dizzy while riding but it is the first time I fell off.

I miss my bike terribly but I am finding that I enjoy walking. I never really walked much before so it is new to me to be walking 3-5 miles a day. I am enjoying taking in the surroundings in a new way. Riding is great fun but you do tend to whiz past everything. Walking really gets you to look and see things.

So I hung up my bike helmet......sigh.

Happy New Year, Roberta. Welcome to old age...my hip joints have started giving me trouble and even walking hurts now! Enjoy it while you can. x

I sold my bike in MIchigan several years ago and gave away my bike in Florida to a friend. I love to walk and you are right!!! You get to see more by walking!!!! Love your mono prints!!!!

Nice painting. I could give you my Drink More Water spiel. Terry must be forced to drink it, but when he gets dizzy it's low blood pressure caused by dehydration. It only took 3 visits to the ER to convince him.

I love to walk.
Happy New Year
