Three-point stance

During the initial Iraq war, I used to read the blog of Moja Vera. He once wrote about coming down a stairwell of some ancient lookout tower in the dark. He reminded himself to keep three points of contact: his two feet, plus a hand on the wall. You'll rarely fall if you do that, he wrote. This is common sense, and I do it all the time, in the shower, or coming down stairs, for example. But when I do, I always think briefly of Moja in that stone tower in Iraq. Now that he's back, he has a cool new job and got married. I wish he were still blogging though.

When I decided to up my DHEA intake to 100 mg per day, a reader warned me about coming off of it -- that I might experience grumpiness, as she had. Well, in an unintentional experiment, I have been forgetting to take the DHEA for at least a week and a half, probably two or three week. Space cadet. Anyway, to my knowledge, there was no grumpiness. (You'd have to ask my lovely wife). I have been feeling extra tired though. So now that I am back on the full dose, we shall see what happens. For the past four or five days, I've had a shoulder/neck ache on the right side that often seems to trigger a headache. It could be related to the strains of the big trip, or the lack of DHEA. We shall see.
