Hi you guys. Welcome to the blog where I talk about the present. You know, the here and now.

You know, a lot of people say I'm a worry wart, but I have a lot to worry about. I mean give me a break. You should see what I saw. For one thing, if you saw what I saw you would turn off your phone and put it away before you drive. There were a lot of people with injuries from the phone in the car. That's why I'm a worry wart.

Frustration. That's a word for this week. Frustration. I'll tell  you, when you're at this point all you want to do is get up and walk across the room and read a paper. But if I tried to do that, I'd look like a character out of Monty Python doing a silly walk. I guess I just have to be patient, but I'll tell you frustration is really kicking in. I'm getting better, no doubt, but it's very very slow. Hey! Did you know we only use about 10% of our brain? Just a fact I'll throw out there. You know my friend here was reading past blogs to me and it must have triggered a dream I had the other night. You know, the blog where I talked about the bartender in Mexico. It made me think of a drink to make: 8 oz. of tomato juice. 4 oz. of beer. 1 shake of tabasco sauce. 1 shake of bitters. 1 oz. of really good silver tequila (you know, top shelf stuff). 1/2 oz. of cointreu or grand marnier. 1/2 oz. of real fresh lime juice. 1/2 oz. of sugar cane syrup. And mix it all up over ice and then strain into a glass of ice, a glass that's rimmed with salt. Throw in a lime and a fresh celery stick and Voila! You have a bloody Marguerita. Too bad I don't drink anymore.

I have lots of dreams. They seem to come to me, you know, the creative dreams, they seem to come to me around 4 am. It's been fun making these dreams come true. Like, I have dreams about painting and photography. I think I mentioned this before. Dreaming. Hey, I got nothing better to do.

I live with my parents just north of New York City. We live on the Hudson River. It's been an amazing summer. I spent a lot of time outside, in my wheelchair, just looking at things like a tree or a glass of water. It's been a very Zen experience. Just opposite to what my life was like. Maybe it's all part of the healing process. The weather's been great. I'll include some photos I've been taking. Some new stuff. Hope you have a good week. Love, B. Nice
