Flex It Like Seymour

Photographed by Helmut Newton, Vogue, July 1976

Les petites, I have been in deep hibernation mode since November. Let's just say I have experienced some life altering occurrences that has left me weak, dejected and not in the mood for much of anything (which will be discussed in another article) - hence the lack of posts. My mood, my weight and my overall health needs a severe pick me up and since I am in recovery mode (hand surgery - it's been a whirlwind les petites) I need to take it slow and I have started by taking walks around the city. Just the other day I walked home from midtown Manhattan (I reside in Brooklyn) and the walk was therapeutic. This week I intend to log in some hours doing yoga and I will keep you all posted. Hopefully, by the Grace of the Divine I will be flexin' like Seymour in no time.
