Photo of the Day

Walking had been an important part of my maintaining my sanity following Billy's death. Two months ago I woke up to find that I could not walk on my right foot, the heel to be more precise. My limp at first was quite profound. My daily walks ended and I lost a lot of interest in taking photographs.

Apparently, I was suffering from some sort of pinched nerve. Sciatica. Fortunately, I didn't have any leg or lower back pain. Perhaps, if I had taken the medicine Dr. Polo had given me and exercised my heel it would have taken less than two months for me to get back to near normal. I have been walking every day this week.

The boardwalk is so beautiful. And, I was privileged to see Blue Herons on Tuesday. This is the last few hundred feet of my usual "walk" before I ascend the hillside to get to the town's central plaza. Every step here in Ajijic is precious and a blessing.
