“A Health Ladder ” Second Step

(For earlier blogs on this subject, click in the TAG CLOUD on “Befuddled”)

I stopped because my mind was temporarily blocked.    ” Befuddled” by too many thoughts.    So I did an easy Sudoku.    Moved my brain to the other side and stepped into a familiar routine.    A simple logical set of processes with its own snakes and ladders,  false steps  and right steps,   but steady progress   and successful one by one steps paid off.     The puzzle was quickly completed.

Stop, take a deep breath, think again.  In retirement one thing that is free and abundent is that  —–   You have more time

Then I realised I had taken the first step on the health ladder.    Not the step I had planned but an all important first step.

  1. I wonder?/ As you say that first breath of freash air in the morning, on the balcony in my jimjams, doing exercises, before eating a plateful of ceral, and a handful of toast: I may ask what have I achieved?:
    1 Switched On a light
    2 Coordinated my movements in the kitchen- Opened a fridge door, fought with opening a carton of milk, spread sugar all over the kitchen floor, instad of on my cerials, dripped milk down my chin, as I soop the last morsal of ceral into my waiting mouth, and final switch on the toaster, set a time limit, burnt the toast to a frazzle, or under cooked it, spread butter on the toast, and finally considered and thought deeply about whether I swamp the buttered toast in Jam of marmalade.
    Alleluia I am awake and still human, Now I must process down to the convenience shop, root around for monies, and buy a morning paper: The choice is perplexing, whether to buy tabloid or broadsheet, cheap or expensive, or even the sporting pink or a financial times. I am by now as you say totally befuddled. But Hark I hear you say! What about that or those few minutes in the Gym doing circuits, that clears the head, the bowels, and knackers me?? Should I have done the Gym before my sojourn into the kitchen?? Where Oh Where are my thoughts, and my marbles, these days they are in a bag, all messed up, like me?? It is great to get old and see younger life fight through the day, with confidence vim and vigour, for me it is five minutes with your ladder, so do not be telling me porkie pies, as I will no doubt belive you, and you my become my saint and idol to worship!! Oh my God! What do you look like in the morning unshaven and unwashed??
