Light The Night with Fire


I worked on burning my growing pile of dead tree. After awhile the mosquitos came through the smoke for a snack of stroke victim. I can’t really feel them biting on my left side. I can feel them on my right, and now I see the bumps on my left.

I sat in the parking lot at the big box home improvement store….it was too hot to look at the plants so I people watched while my son was inside buying parts to fix my house. I saw several very overweight people. One was toting an oxygen tank. He was huffing and puffing from walking his cart to the corral then back to the handicapped area. I don’t want to end up like that. I started to mow the lawn for exercise when I got home. I am hoping to keep the mental picture to keep me motivated to walk. I still remember being mad at myself in the hospital after my stroke for allowing myself to gain another 30 pounds.
