Still not well  
I'm still not doing so great. It's been just over a week since my back and my fibro started acting up. I've been in and out of bed with all the symptoms I mentioned before. I'm very stiff in the mornings and can't stand up straight. It seems to slowly be getting better though. Today I feel very weak and tired. I hope this is my one bad illness for the year because I want to be in great shape for my travels.

Speaking of which I have booked a shore excursion that will take us to Maho Beach in St. Maarten so we can go see the airplanes. I'm VERY happy about that as the airport is famous for one of the most dangerous runways in the world. The reason is the island is small so there were few places to put a runway. And there are mountains. So the planes have a short runway to land on. And take offs are dangerous too because the have to climb quickly to clear the mountains. Pilots of the big planes need a special license and lots of experience before they are allowed to land at this airport. It made it onto this documentary about the 10 most dangerous airports at #4
So yes a must do as that's the best thing about the island. But I'm not stupid enough to hang on that fence. I already have enough physical problems with out purposely adding more. I have seen a very nasty youtube video where a girl was lifted and smashed into a concrete wall. And I have no doubt she weighed more than me. Most females my height way a lot more than I do. I'll film and take pics from the beach and from that little bar. What's weird about this tour is it also stops at Orient Beach first. I looked it up and yikes it may be a nude beach so the plan is to stay on the bus for the first part as we only care about Maho and the airport. Oh another thing. Though they've never had an accident at this island with the planes I would only visit there by boat. I like planes but that's too dangerous to risk both take off and landing for my taste. But yeah those people in the video. So obvious they are SP personalities. I can't stand SP's. I say that stands for "stupid people". I just don't get thrill seekers that even experiencing bad is something they must try. Like the guy saying that rocks and sand don't feel good. WTF? I don't have to stand behind an airplane to know that. WTF?

As far as creative works I have only drawn a little bit. But I have mostly been writing. I'm very happy with how far I have come with No Longer One. I need to post those chapters here.

I'm sorry your back and fibro have been acting up, still. I'm glad it is slowly getting better. I sure hope you are well when your holiday comes up. It sounds so cool!
