COMING SOON, I HOPE! Warmer weather or at least, SUNSHINE, I hope! I've been without "solar heating" for five days! Coming Soon: Reflections on Georgia O'Keefe, One of the Foremost Female Artists of the 20th Century; and Montauk Light: A Cool Destination; and "On the Rocks" -- with an accompanying poem -- to http://sites.google.com/site/makingartaffordabletothepublic/ and; "Trouble Becomes Her..."...and...my birthday...which is also my niece Julia's birthday...on Wednesday, March 3rd...(snow flurries only :)...and my sister Kelley's birthday...on Tuesday, March 2nd...!
HOT FLASHES! Hey. What do I care? I've been in my 40s for quite some time now. Here at the New London Library today -- the wintry weather warrants a walk down the street only -- I read a magazine entitled HEALTH with Keri Russell on the cover. Hormonal changes of a woman in her 40s + Night sweats / Hot Flashes = Insomnia = FATIGUE! The Cure: Any Cardio Workout (usu. 30-40 mins daily): Walking; Hiking; Jogging; Dancing; Aerobics; Swimming...Etc. As for me, I LOVE the Outdoors and I can't afford the gym; can't conform to a scheduled class these days. So, to complete the equation, add "+ Winter Weather!" Indoor Suggestions: DVD Workout such as Denise Austin or Pilates Yoga Ball DVD (goldenearth.com) or indoor swimming at NLHS pool. EXCERCISE!

It's time to put on the brakes! Time to stop being a human doing. It's time to start doing things on the spur of the moment again. Say no to an overbooked schedule -- for good! Who says I don't work? LEARN CHINESE - Happiness. Lucky numbers 35, 12, 41, 25, 33, 51. There's no point to being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes. When can I start? OK, here goes...GO, OLYMPIANS! Go Sean! go Sean! Go, Lindsey Vonne! go, Lindsey Vonne! (SP?) Go Belbin & Agosto! Go Rachel Flatt! Pick up the slack! Keep going! Keep going! You can do it! You can do it! Great job! (See what happens to YOU if you've been stuck inside all day during a storm!) MORE TO COME SOON...when this weather lets up and the sun shines again! (Denise...Denise Dances...2010)
