Today was a nice pace of working on calligraphy, writing and doing some odds and ends. I had a weird episode of feeling so strange with my back in the afternoon that I thought I might need to take something, but I did my deep breathing and meditating, and it calmed down and then went away. I have been very careful with my back, as stressed by my surgeon, so I did not think I had done anything to hurt it, but it was pretty strange and scary for about a half hour.
After that I decided to head out to do a little shopping and go to the marina with a friend. It suddenly got a bit chilly, so we did not stay long after we ate snacks for an early dinner, sitting on a bench watching the pelicans and seagulls. It was beautiful, just chilly.
