Recuperation

Here I sit in front of a frozen pond, in a County Park in the woods in  the waning days of February in northern New Jersey. It is 70 degrees out. And so are the people.
A few months ago I had a total knee replacement. The 1/4 mile walk felt like the Bataan Death Match. But this is therapy and it doesn’t come without pain. But here there are rewards afterwards.

The park is filled with people. People and dogs. Everyone stops to chat. Although not a bad winter it still was a long winter. Everyone is happy to be out. Although still in New Jersey, only a short distance from Civilization one would not know it from here.

Life is good.
