With the winter comes colder weather, and hot cocoas and wonderful get-togethers with friends and family. However, it also means very grumpy muscles! Lately my body doesn't seem to want to extend in any way. Most noticeable is how my back doesn't want to bend. At all. This casual photo was taken in the studio after I'd warmed up, and yet my back still doesn't want to cooperate. My legs are slightly less complaining (only slightly). They say ginseng helps, but I'd say continual stretching and more sleep would be the ticket. I'm good on the first, not so good on the second count. Will Santa give me a more flexible back for Christmas? Ha, only hard work will do!
