Anticipation, Journal Work




Thought about that word today as spring drags it's snowy, muddy feet north. Anticipation has always been as good as actual doing to me. Ihave thought of poppy pods for a long time, I wanted wonderful, georgous, I didn't get that, but I did get interesting. This is journal work.

I thought about anticipation at 6am, that is the time I get to the fitness center to ride stationary bike, and walk on the New Step, one other exercise and then arobics for one hour in the pool. This is about getting strength back in my leg and it is quite strong, but it is shorter now so I can't really walk even. I suppose this could happen after knee replacement, then breaking that leg and having a rod put in one thigh. You just can't rent a leg stretcher around here. :>) I do well with a cane, and I have called a shoe cobbler about working on the soles of shoes, making it thicker.

There is collage on the original seed pods, also the brighter deeper colors are the original colors, and the pale tones are a digital alter along with a photo of my garden poppies.
