Age | The Daily Post

 

The Aging process is not for sissies. Everyone ages at a different rate. I never smoked and am only a social drinker. As many of you know I was in the U.S. Army for four years from November 1977 to November 1981. Then I was at my Peak Performance. I was in excellent physical condition. Actually from birth to age 48 my health was outstanding. I had amazing energy, could exercise without any problems, and received great doctor reports. The worst problems I had were some acne and menstrual cramps.

Then when I was 49 I had a mild stroke. Much of the vision in my left eye is gone. Pain is my constant companion. My digestive system has not worked properly in a long time. No more running up and down steps. The latest health challenges is I reach for things with my right hand and my entire right arm ignores me as well as now I have headaches almost every day.  Food allergies. 

Once I hit 50 Mr. Arthur Itis aka arthritis has been a faithful boyfriend. More any real life guys. Of course dating hits the skids after 50. Romance is only a distant dream kinda like being healthy.  However at my age a bed equals sleep. I’m tired 24/7/365. Mostly I blame menopause and genetics for my health issues. 

People tell me I look good for my age or they look at me in disbelief when I tell them I will be 59 Feb. 2018.  So even though my insides are falling apart my outside looks great!

Check out these photos from my younger and better days! Proud to be a Baby Boomer! 

 

 

Now here is what I currently look like. Feel like crap but still looking good. Oh yeah some light makeup helps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Soulful Strut | The Daily Post

What’s a Soulful Strut you ask? Well in addition to being a song by the late Great Grover Washington Jr. It’s also my theme song for my Photography walks around Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. 

Many years ago I had the pleasure of not only seeing Grover Washington Jr in concert but meeting him after the show.

Mystery | The Daily Post

I find that Art can be mysterious in terms of trying to figure out what the artist was communicating. Even though I work for a museum sometimes the meaning escapes me so I give my brain a rest and just enjoy.
