 Song mood: Animal by Def Leppard. Good old 80's British rock.  I saw them in concert once, at a state fair in South Dakota.

I got my first COVID shot, and it's kicking my ass.  I hurt all over and the arm I got the shot in hurts way more.  Not nearly as bad real COVID, but still.

So, it is a good thing I did my arm work out last night.  After doing exercises last night, I was out of breath.  I thought to myself that recovering my strength will be a long process.

I started the Taoist Breathing online course last night.  I needed to work on my breathing.  It has been rather shallow for a while.  The course also helps the meditation process, which in turn will help with focusing issues.


So tonight is watching mysteries, or reading mysteries, or both.


I'll probably visit my mum in Fargo this weekend.  A six to seven hour drive may be rough.  I used to do those all the time when I was younger.


I will continue to work my projects, just not tonight.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m
