Persistence Pays Off

Persistence Pays Off

Fortunately, my condition is greatly improved!

My secret stop seeing doctors, and create my own rehab program.

For many years I worked on my acoustic guitar technique, which became my module for improving my gait and posture.

I realized that the constant use of a cane was preventing me from improving my balance and stride.

In 2017 I took a trip to Spain, as I  only use of one hand. I decided to leave my cane home, This turned  out to be a success, beyond my imagination. I needed a free hand to carry my suitcase.

When I returned without incident, I could see that my right side was more capable.

I do focus on slowing down and constantly correct my placement of my right foot and leg.

In order to become a solid acoustic guitarist, I had to revise my body posture, and that aided me in recalibrating my stride and form.

More reflection on this topic when I revise my website, which has become static and stale with old entries.
