Waiting at the DMV....

Few things hold more trepidation for me then being 'trapped' some place, in line, where I have to put on my 'normal face' and hang out bored with strangers (worst: standing in a line which I find nearly impossible). But our local DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) is someplace super special, where no one ever hurries and people are jammed in like sardines.

I had to get my drivers license renewed and I had worried and worried about it because waiting for so long is a big problem for me. But no one else could get me license for me because I had to have a new photo taken.

I went in and as a set down a fellow on my right says "hey I have to go, want my ticket?" And he was next. I was able to reduce my hour and a half wait time down to zilch and get in and out in 20 minutes.

That was pretty cool and I'm really grateful to that fellow.

Sometimes things work out after all.

My health - well I crashed again and ironically just as the weather got pretty and I really want to be outside playing. Shoot. I didn't quite make it to two weeks, but guess it's the longest bit of respite I've had in a very long time.

My number one priority in my day is getting my Yoga done because it does make my bones and joints feel significantly better. This is the video I use for neck and shoulder relief. It can be done from a chair, I've even done it in bed.

Wishing you all the best - Love and Light
