A good morning routine

It's before 6:00 a.m. and already this morning I've: Walked Alice (1 mile). Did a 30-minute walk/run on the treadmill. Meditated for 10 minutes. Wrote a couple of pages in my journal. I would like to adopt this routine every morning, but I'm usually only good for maybe two of the above. Working on it.

I sent my Hasselblad 500C/M, 80mm Planar lens, and an A12 back to David Odess for a CLA in 2018. The camera has worked like new ever since. I just learned that Mr. Odess passed away recently (Aug. 2023). This is sad for the obvious reasons, but it's also sad because a lifetime of knowledge and craft around maintaining the Hasselblad V system has been lost.
