This Week...Healing Heels and Proust


We’ve had an off and on again rainy week and it is giving us time to heal our heels...plantar fasciitis. We both wear good walking shoes with support when we walk but I suppose they decided to scream to us that they need a break. 

 

 

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust



Exercises, ice, and some anti-inflammatories are working so we are on the mend. And we’re also glad that they picked a rainy period to flare up.

 



Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Marcel Proust

 

Today happens to be Marcel Proust’s birthday. While I’ve never read his novel ...In Search of Lost Time...his quotes have always intrigued me.



As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost and science can never regress. Marcel Proust

 

This photo was taken the morning after the July 4th Fireworks in the neighborhoods. The next morning the fog we saw was a mixture of fireworks smoke and fog.



If we are to make reality endurable, we must all nourish a fantasy or two.  Marcel Proust



Have fun this weekend and take it from me...take care of your heels!!!


 

Like many intellectuals, he was incapable of saying a simple thing in a simple way. Marcel Proust

Nina Hollander, Broker I agree.  There are some quotes...such as those from Mark Twain and Benjamin Franklin that continue to make me think. 

Kat Palmiotti Thank you. My heel is back to normal and Larry has ice on his as well speak!

Brian England thank you...I appreciate it!!!  When I saw how foggy it was, I couldn't believe it. But the smoke was so heavy on the 4th it was hard to breathe. 


Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Thank you!!  Not being able to walk every day is hard but we thought it best not to aggravate it. And thank you...I hope my neighbors didn't see me taking it. I raced out in my nightshirt to take the picture before the fog went away.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® When we started walking years ago we went to a store that specialized in running/walking shoes. The same thing that happened to Rick happened to Larry. He decided to try some insoles in his shoes because his knee was bothering him. That's when his heel started to hurt.   And yes, that quote could have been written in our time.
