I’ve been taking it pretty easy, taking time to heal after my foot surgery at the end of last year. It’s been a much slower process than I had anticipated. Now I’m getting about pretty well and have recovered from my long drive to LA and back for the convention a few weeks ago. It’s normally a long drive but not that big a deal for me but the challenge as I’ve learned with foot surgery is that the more time you spend standing (and to a slightly lesser extent with ones foot down while driving) the more the foot swells up. I lost a few days of progress with that trip but now have more than caught up.
In a little more than a week I’ll be heading down to LA again — this time by plane, to photograph a Bar Mitzvah for my good friend and fellow photographer Louis. It will be good to see Louis and to get back to work! Over the past week and from now until I leave I’m spending time every day walking to get my foot used to it and I continue to do exercises for my foot every day and spend lots of time in the gym getting my body strong again!
