One of my fav poems from JRR Tolkien's The Two Towers that I read
earlier today at Tolkien Reading Day at Simple Studios

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

PERSONAL NEWS #276
Feb 1st, during my lunch hour, I had an appt with my foot doctor.  After work, I had a private yoga class at my apt with Fabrice.

Feb 3rd, I had a much needed massage therapy session for my back.  Afterwards, I took care of several errands / chores.

Feb 4th, I had a private yoga class at my apt with Fabrice.  That afternoon into evening I joined friends in seeing the film “The Greatest Showman”.  It was very entertaining and Hugh Jackman doesn’t disappoint.  Afterwards, we had a delicious dinner at The Turkish Cuisine on 9th Avenue.

Feb 5th, after work, I had a physical therapy session for my ankle/foot

Feb 7th, after work, I had a dental appt for beginning prep work on partials.

Feb 8th, after work, I participated in the BFP Fundraising committee conference call.

Feb 9th, I attended and participated in an all-day event for work out in Long Island City.

Feb 11th, I had a private yoga class at my apt with Fabrice.

Feb 12th, after work, I visited a good friend of mine who has been doing my taxes for 20 years.  While doing my taxes, I treated him to Chinese dinner, which didn’t help our spirits much, as the taxes for 2017 were difficult.  We’ll finish them up later and looks like I will owe IRS some money.

Feb 17th, I met up with a friend of mine, and we visited the Brooklyn neighborhood of Dumbo for lunch / photo adventures.  Weather started out sunny, and then got cloudy and cold.  We enjoyed a ride on Jane’s Carousel near the waterfront, walked around the cobbled streets, took lots of photos and had lunch at a Japanese place called Miso.  Back in my hood I picked up a framed print at Imagic Studio and then home to relax.

Feb 19th, after my private yoga class at my apt with Fabrice, I headed into Manhattan for a physical therapy session for my foot/ankle.  Then it was uptown to meet a friend and go see the amazing film “Black Panther”.  We both loved it!  Brilliant movie!

Feb 21st, after work, I had a dental appt for beginning prep work on partials.

Feb 22nd, I had lunch with a friend, and after work, attended a BFP event regarding Yemen at The Commons.

Feb 23rd to 25th, I visited the parents in upstate NY, and assisted them with many chores and errands.  They are both in unpleasant health and it saddens me to see this.  I also got my hair done at a local salon.  Upon arriving home around 9pm, I learned that both my parents were taken to the hospital, and admitted as they had the Flu.

Feb 26th, after work, I had a physical therapy session for my foot/ankle.

Feb 28th, after work, I attended the informative and interesting monthly BFP PEJ committee meeting at The Commons in Brooklyn.
