Not Today

Sunday morning. Perfectly clear skies. Light wind. Warm air. My compatriots are about to launch at South Shore for the weekly kayak paddle. So, why am I not there?

I ache today and have a sore throat. There is a program on cabel about the creation of the atomic bomb. It is Memorial Day weekend, and I am a combat vet (flight surgeon). There has to be about 50 wars going on around the world. I don't know what kind of world my daughters will live to see. I have lots of things on my mind.

So, I am giving myself a doctor's excuse along with permission to lay around and put out a very short blog. Sometimes kayaking isn't the most important thing in the world.
