6564-08A Hi you guys. Welcome to my blog where I talk about the Present.

Man, I tell you, when you have a brain injury like this, it's tough. But, you gotta keep doing things to push it a little. It would be easy to just sit in front of the TV and do nothing, but you gotta push it. Just the other day, I went into the city for my birthday. My friend treated me to a birthday brunch. It was cool. It was tough though I'll tell you, because there was still a lot of snow in the city. I had a great brunch though, with my friends, so thank you my friends.

The thing that's a drag though, is, I still have what I call "moments." It seems the anti seizure medicine I'm on works really good. It stops any really big seizures. Anytime you have a lot of stimulation like noise and sight, it triggers these little moments. Kind of a drag, but, hey, it's entertaining.

One thing I pushed myself to do is I walk at the end of the day, even though I'm extremely tired. I use a device called the up N go to walk. I don't go far. Like 100 yards, but let me tell you, it feels like a marathon. But you know what? Each time, each day I do it, I get a little better and better. A little smoother and smoother. So all the hard work does pay off. Hey, nothing worthwhile is easy, right?

Some friends came up for a visit as well. That always brightens the soul. It was a great visit. So, thank you my friends. They brought me some new tools for painting. You see, anything you love to do, you gotta keep on trying to do it.

One thing that's new is I've been cooking more and more with my assistant. I got a bunch of new curries from a friend of mine and we've been using them to cook. I don't cook, 'cause a hot pan and me don't really mix, but I do all the ordering around. Kind of fun. Tonight we're making Chicken Bombay Curry. It's a lot of fun. Anyway, that's about it for now. I gotta get back to prepping for the cooking. Hope you guys have a good week. Love and miss you all. This is B. Nice signing off.
