Cloudless sunrise at the old rodeo arena, Ajo Arizona
I got up this morning pretty early, got dressed and drove the three or four miles into town and made it to the downtown Plaza just about 8 o'clock. But even that early I still didn't beat some of the folks to the old Catholic Church that's right across the street from the Plaza, there was already half a dozen cars parked around the church. I was hoping for a car free picture of the church, but it was not to be.
I didn't take as many pictures as I'd hoped because the sun was just rising above the mountains outside of Ajo and it was absolutely blinding while facing in the general direction of east. So I couldn't take any pictures in that direction, and I couldn't drive around as much as I wanted to because the sun was blinding me. And I guess it's been a while since I cleaned my windshield as I could barely see out of it while driving east.
I did manage to get my propane tank refilled at $3.20 a gallon which is pretty high but everything in Ajo is a bit more expensive than most other places. I reckon that's the price you pay to be able to enjoy the Ajo ambience.
Due to the peace, quiet, and laid-back attitude of Ajo, which is all part of the aforementioned Ajo ambience, I have to report that in an effort to fit in to this environment I have become even more lazy, lethargic, and sedentary, than I normally am, and I didn't think that was even possible. I've put on a couple pounds, so now I'm at 207 and I'm spending more time in my easy chair than normal. And spending even more time in my easy chair wasn't easy to accomplish, I had to wake up earlier, and go to bed later just to have enough waking hours available to achieve that.
So due to my upsurge in weight, and my increased ability to relax for long periods of time without tiring out, I'm thinking something needs to be done and it needs to be done now.
Something this serious can't be taken lightly, and is too important to jump around willy-nilly grasping at just any quick fix. This is the kind of problem that must be given a lot of thought, solutions need to be sought, and remedies must be found, and this can only happen after serious reflection, a complete understanding of the problem, and weighing competing theories of various physical and mental therapies.
Since there's no time like the present and not wanting to put this off, I opened up a beer, and retired to my easy chair to give this issue my full consideration.... Relaxing in my easy chair doesn't bother me now that I'm doing it for a good reason.
