Under Construction
The Sistahs Steppin' in Pride Parade in Oakland

January 31, 2007

Starting Tomorrow
Monday. Well, this case of the whatever I have has turned around, a good night's sleep for the first time last night, but I suspect I won't be ready to go back to work until Wednesday. Maybe I've just never taken my blood pressure before in the middle of one of these things, but since I have a unit sitting on the desk beside my bed, I started taking it over the last four days. I was dizzy whenever I got out of bed (and believe me, with this thing you spent a lot of time getting up out of bed, sometimes pretty quickly, heading for the bathroom) so I was curious. Dizzy? Blood pressure? Could there be some correlation? It read 79 over 51 this morning. Gosh. Here in Oakland.

Wednesday. Boy howdy do I feel better, even after a day at the office. I'm really glad this last month is ending. I'm looking forward to a better month starting tomorrow.

The photograph was taken at the Oakland Sistahs Steppin' in Pride Parade with a Nikon D2X mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 Nikkor VR lens at 1/200th, f 2.8, ISO 100.
