I have always loved chairs and their promise of comfort. From a simple stool to an elaborate office chair (appliance?) they all offer you relief from standing with a free lap thrown in. I often photograph them just because of this and often because their shapes and designs vary so much. So, now you'll get to share.
I have been away due to wee health issues. Once back from France I went back to my exercise routine. I always monitor my heart rate while working out. Three weeks ago I noticed my HR would not go over 100 while I was doing cardio that should have had it at about 120. Then it dropped to 31 while I drove.
Two doctor visits later I was in hospital for a heart ablation to correct an atrial flutter. It went very well and I was home for three days and developed some major hip pain that sent me back in. The upshot is that I have a hematoma in my thigh that I am slowly reabsorbing. This has kept me away from adding to the blogs and from taking new pictures. I will work my way back in the following weeks.
This is one of my favorite chairs. It's uglier than a mud fence and is only marginally comfortable, but sits backed up to a west facing window and is the perfect place to read or look at photographs. I won't have access to it as it sits where we put up our Christmas tree every year. But, come January.................
