The first evening’s Yoga class…

Years ago you fell out. Painfully.

You’ve hardly spoken since. Determined silence. Occasional incivility.

Then one day you had to spend time together. Socially. It was awkward at first. Then uncertain. It never actually became comfortable. And who knows how it will work out. But it was promising — your body and you.

Drive, then walk up into the Brindabellas, and as the sun slips from the sky, look nor’west, out into a continent.

Got your back

A very useful post by aid data guru David Roodman on how to take care of your back.

For what it’s worth – as I’m desperately trying to keep enough mobility in my arthritic body – to stay a surfer (I actually had mild chronic back problems pre arthritis too) find that:

1. McKenzie rolls help.

2. A standing desk is great; although I can stand for half a working day at the absolute most.

3. Walking helps a lot.

4. Stretching is a big help too; just don’t push things too far.

At least, this seems to be working for me — and surfing is currently leading to less pain.
