Here's another shot with the Prisma app, not everyone's cup of tea I know but maybe my most successful faux painting to date and I've tried a number of programs/apps over the years.  The story is this:  I've been feeling really poorly but after a checkup, a good bill of health was received.  So what do you do?  Go have  donuts and think about it.  With the fine fall weather upon us, I thought I'd just bite the bullet and see how a trail ride feels.  It was a magic cup of tea, I think it could pull anyone up and out of the doldrums. So when a good friend complained of the same thing, I agreed:  trips to the YMCA or your particular favorite type of body movement might just be the ticket.

This shot was at the old backwoods Boy Scout camping area of the local park I bike at (which is the 2nd biggest in Kentucky).  It takes on the abandoned look periodically, I've witnessed this a number of times and I've been coming here since I was a young teenager (though by foot back then).   A very good picnic table survives and I've purchased a tiny inexpensive backpacking stove, the plan being to bike into the back area of the park and brew up coffee during cold fall and winter mornings.  We did this a few times last year with a couple of friends and had a nice time, it always helps to have a destination and a purpose when you are aiming at exercise.

Hope your week is starting off well.  I'll lay off the faux painting apps a bit (or maybe not, I'm a sucker for 'em).
