June 1, 2016
Decided to test the hemoglobin, so I went to the Arboretum. How beautiful everything was there! One forgets the comfort of the simple laying of green upon green, the flowers doubling themselves in still water. Walked, then sat in a rocking chair and watched the ten or twelve feet of grass in front of me. Birds called in the near trees. It was almost impossible to keep awake. A blue tailed skink patrolled the edge of the pavement, climbed into a great planter of foliage, moving among the little flowers like a dinosaur in some great forest. As for the blood, it did fine. I reckon I’m about half way back to fighting prime.
