The last time I paid this much attention to my body was in 2015 when  recovering from malaria. And of course, what you pay attention to grows, right? I'm hearing a lot of  moans, cracks and crinks. They say black don't crack and whereas my face is easily 5-10 years younger, the bones and joints are on schedule. Maybe it's time I revisited my fitness goals. Hard to believe there was a time I was practicing Aikido 3-4 hours a week. Oh, if I could turn back the hands of time *whistles away
