Stand and Fight by Ragnar949
Stand and Fight
The urban warrior: Scratchy Samurai.   Never sit and watch things unfold and wonder why the events came to pass.  A little homage to the sixties poster art and the films of Toshiro Mifuni and  Akira Kurosawa.

I've been exploring the art that originally pulled me into it's world and it's been fun.

Thank you in advance for any+fav s, they are always appreciated.

I am just getting over the flu for the first time in over 25 years.  It was nasty, the flu always is but the dry heaves are the worst.  My diaphragm, lungs, rib cage, and heart have beaten and bruised.  Though it could have been far worse, and for awhile I was thinking that time was running out as I could tell that my heart took the brunt of it.  Then the dear wife came in and gave me a Popsicle, it was over.  I had tried ice chips and cola (hated the latter)earlier but they didn't work.  Ice and sugar together did the job.  A popsicle or (I would expect) an "Italian Ice" are wonder drugs.  I suspect most of you know about this, but just in case you don't..... 

I am 99.99% certain that my ability to avoid all bacteria and viral infections for well over twenty five years is due to Tai chi practice.  In the last 5 years after the house burned, my practice diminished slowly and this is what it got me.  But before that everyone would get it around me, but not me.  Before I began learning the art, I was sick more often than I should have been.  Within two years everything had changed.  Now 10% of the population will never get the flu because of something in their gut.  Another 10% don't for unknown reasons, Up until now I think I had been in that latter category.  I need to get back there.


Keep well and take care of each other.

Michael  AKA Ragnar



Now I have to deal with two thousand deviations.....catching up is going to take awhile.  Maybe I'll start tomorrow...I think I am going back to bed and try to sleep....but that may be a lost cause as my wife sent me some images of creepy dolls that she picked up for me.  I can't wait to see them in person.:) (Smile)
