Day 75: Burning the Candle

15 Mar

To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
Ursula K. Le Guin
candle9I played in my weekly club poker tournament last night at seven and then played a cash game until 3:30 in the morning, getting home at four in the morning.  The game is so soft it is impossible to walk away.  It’s like being handed money.

Earlier in the day I spent a few hours playing chess. while my mother was at chemotherapy  Plus I had practiced my banjo and guitar.  I may be doing too much.

Spring is nearly here and I’ll be on the bike in the mornings.  It’s important that I find more balance to my activities.

It’s been hard because of my mom’s cancer.  I am with her four days a week.  I’m not complaining.  When I retired back in 2011 my brother was dying of colon cancer.  I took him to doctor’s appointments and out and about.  After his death we found my mom had lung cancer.  The routine continues.

I’ll be on the bike soon, in the mornings.  Things are only going to get better.
