Another lovely evening, and I am pleasantly tired.  Joyce and I met for lunch at Fish, and visited the Bay Model which I always enjoy.  The current art exhibit, Ebb and Flow, has a display of used bullet cases now filled with silk and potpourri.  We met the artist who spoke of the time involved in creating her statement.  She can fill fifty bullets, if she works all day.  There are over 4000 transformed bullets in her creation. 

I had acupuncture today and again I feel my fatigue.  She continues to assure me I am normal for what I have been through.  It will take at least a year.  How does she know?  She went through it a few years ago, and she is young, and so, it is.

I found this to be exciting news.   I place the first part of the article here.  

Rare California millipede found 80 years after last sighting

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The world's leggiest creature is missing-in-action no more.

A scientist found a rare species of millipede, last seen 80 years ago in central California, and has collected several of the inch-long bugs for study.

This millipede has more than 600 legs, about twice the average millipede - despite the name which means "thousand-legged." Of the estimated 10,000 species, only one, I. plenipes, comes close to living up to its name and thrives only in California

And now to rest my two legs and feet.   Imagine 600 of them.
