Feeling Better, Why?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of the problems about this need to stay in isolation is that I had plans to reach an answer to a question I have.  I understand many have had to cancel their travels, make changes, etc., but my situation is a little different.

Before I moved to Homewood at Plum Creek I had back surgery and wasn’t walking well but thankful to be walking with a cane.  During the years since then, I got better and better but still had issues with back and leg pains and then hand and thumb pains from arthritis.

Finally, I now feel better than I have felt for a long time with only infrequent reminders from lower back pains.  I have gotten to the point that I haven’t been using a cane since the beginning of the year.  I was hoping to continue walking further and more often and going back to the streets and roads around Hanover as I looked for interesting subjects to photograph.  And then along came COVID-19.

Since then, I have dropped my plans for walking the streets and since I’m not photographing Homewood events, etc., I am now looking for alternative ideas for photography much closer to home; but, I’m wondering if my freedom from the pains of old are due to physical healing, or from not doing the physical things like walking and photographing events.

    If it has been better since Jan. , then probably the healing is due to the fact that you have in the past been constant in your walking.We were not confined until March.
