I promised one post one post a day for 40days -promised to myself as much as to my readers. Unfortunately today I had something on my mind that worried me and prevented me from conjuring up anything very inspiring. Some good things happened to me on this day, I must admit. First, by mistake I went to a rather advanced class of Pilates and managed to get through it without totally disgracing myself. I worked on the reformer machine which I quite like. Then, in the afternoon, a nice young man who is the son of a friend came to look at my forlorn front yard. He will transform it — into what I am not quite sure but it cannot be much worse than what sulks outside my door now. Even the weather was a bit better today with some sunny periods. Still, it is amazing how some care or preoccupation can totally hold the mind captive and cast a pall over every activity. I will sleep now and try to do better tomorrow. I will try to find a beautiful image in any case.
There, I found a beautiful picture by Sisley, an Impressionist artist. This always looks to me like the path down in Lachine close to my home.
