JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 07.25.20
It’s a pain in the butt.
No, seriously, I have a pain in my butt. It’s been there the past couple of week.
In fact, my whole right side is in some way…not right.
The pain in the middle of my gluteus maximus is more pronounced when I’m sitting and have to get up, especially getting out of my truck.
Then, an addendum, is that I get this tingle down on the side of my right shin.
Sciattica? Maybe. Some other pinched nerve? Maybe. I’ve consulted this website, and my wife (the personal trainer) for ways to stretch it all out. No relief just yet.
Then, on Monday, while riding a gravel path I ride all the time, I took a different tract to avoid some deep ruts. Never took that version around the ruts before.
Now I know why. Because when you go that route, it’s easy to lose control and hit these big rocks jutting out on the side the path.
Which then lead to your front wheel flying out of your hand and commencing with you sliding along the gravel path for a few feet.
And your upper forearm, elbow and rear right shoulder looking like someone took a cheese grater to it.
Not to mentioned a busted tube and flat tire.
So, it’s been a painful week in some regards.
But hey, it could be worse. Much worse.
My family is happy and healthy. Despite being off the bike, I got out for some nice walks (in the morning muggy humidity).
When I was back on the bike, I saw some really pretty parts of my extended neighborhood.
Thursday, I got caught is a soft morning rain shower. Then, late that night, watched a cool lightening storm late night this week.
The beat goes on for this summer of COVID.

“The similarity between Van Gogh, Haiku poetry, and good photography is the concern for mortality. That things are very fleeting, that there are people who are more sensitive to death than others. The camera is a very appropriate instrument for many.” ~ Dennis Stock (July 24, 1928 – January 11, 2010)
