Addiction 2022.1

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

After the first night back in the hammock, I still have left leg issues. Can't expect an overnight cure. I am the only one who believes it will occur. It's amazing(possibly to me only) that the doctors of the world think they see all know all. The patient is simply a dumb potato to them.

You could use the same jar of mineral spirits several times. Just let the crap settle out, and pour into a clean jar. Allow the residue to dry, clean the old jar, and use it as the NEXT 'clean jar'.

The dreams are, at best, wearisome. And the phase where I realize that what I've been experiencing (mostly from the past) isn't real life now is always disconcerting.

After the ride you could cut a hole in the ice and go for a swim.
