Short summary of the week: I envy that gull his bendable neck!
Weather-wise and otherwise it’s been a rollercoaster ride of a week.
The “otherwise” has to do with mixed news about friends; and also what one blogging friend (Rae) calls “badiversaries” (more explicitly this week was two years since my mother’s sudden death).
“Weather-wise” we’ve had the kind of low pressure weather that seems to literally just knock me out flat these days. In some ways worse than the cold mid-winter (or maybe that’s just short memory on my part). Anyway my neck and shoulder have been in very uncooperative achy mood; to the point of nausea.
Yesterday as I walked into town (slowly, and carefully balancing my head), besides thinking I should have taken my winter coat out of the wardrobe again, I found myself seriously wishing (not for the first time!) for a way to leave my head and right arm back home in bed, and only take the rest of me to town. But then again… nah… I guess I’d probably need my head… But what if I could just carry it under my left arm instead?
This is not straight out of the camera!
(Found it on some website for kids, Halloween section.)
Hmm. I’m guessing such an arrangement might make it rather hard to handle the camera, though... Not to mention how many people I’d scare out of their wits, I suppose! ;)
For now I guess I’m stuck with the duller kind of compromises.
