Hi you guys. Welcome to my blog where I talk about the present. I'm wearing a vest I got from my physical therapist. It's a vest with weights in it. You know, I always lean to the left, so they counter balance me by putting weights on the right. It's pretty cool and it works really good. It's very Jean Paul Gaultier. A good excuse to get a nice new jacket. The other thing that happened this week is my friend called me up from Paris. He's opening a really nice hotel. I'm very proud of him. It's a cool hotel. I forgot to tell him though, I'm gonna move into a suite, starting next week. I wish I could fly over there and check it all out. But, in time, I'll get there by boat.

I have some great stories with my friend and I, but I won't go into that now. Let's save it for later. Anyway, congrats to my friend who opened the hotel.

I'm not sure what else to talk to you guys about. You know, this has all been going on for over six years now. I went to my physical therapist to get an update. They do things like, give you advice on how to transfer from your wheelchair to your bed. I got kind of bummed out because my therapist didn't say, "Wow! You've really improved." I tend to get bummed out, but you gotta keep your head down and keep working hard. You'll take everything moment by moment, day by day. I liken this to when I ran track. When I ran the mile, my coach would run across the field and constantly give me my times to see if I was on pace to reach my goal of the day. All of this is kind of like that. The goal is to get better, and the pace is you just work harder and harder.

That's it for this week. I'm gonna go for a swim with my vest. You think that is a good idea? Talk to you next week and here's my link to my other blog about the past. There's a funny poem there this week. The picture is like a dream. It's a picnic that the town had at our Art Center. Check it out.

Love, B. Nice
