Sitting, waiting.

I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

To me this picture makes a statement. A huge statement about New Orleans. And, perhaps the state of America. From a health perspective. Look at the details of the picture very carefully and you’ll see what I mean. Far be it from me to do any kind of shaming. I think we are what we are. Besides, on some days I can barely walk so who am I to complain?

At least I try. No matter how bad the pain is, I still manage to walk three miles a day. I try to eat well. I stretch… until the stretching doesn’t see to help. I think a lot of people in this picture — well four — have given up.

That wasn’t the intentional point of this picture. I just liked the moment. I didn’t really see all that was going on until I opened it up to work on it. At first it seemed funny. But, as I looked at it I began to think, “Wow, we are in really bad shape as a group of people.”

So. What are we going to do about it?

Oh yeah. And, those smartphones. I won’t say it. Again.

  1. Ray,

    I am sorry to learn of your walking problems. I’ve dealt with chronic pain for over 35 years from a back injury
    It is no fun, but a good attitude like your’s speaks highly. Hang in there my good friend,

    Doug W.
