Passing the Time While Healing

Passing the Time While Healing

A bad fall gave me a bit of back trouble and I had to see a San Francisco chiropractor. The chiropractor told me that I would need to rest for a while to give my back a chance to fully heal. I thought it would be boring because I wouldn’t be able to do anything too extraneous, but it hasn’t been all bad for me. I’ve been able to relax, sit in my new recliner, and even got around to finishing that giant jigsaw puzzle that I bought many years ago. It was a picture of the San Francisco bay, cut into 1000 unique pieces.

I bought the puzzle on a whim while at the store one day. I was there buying some items that I regularly use, and I came across the toy aisle. At the very edge of this aisle was the puzzle. At first I walked passed it, but then I turned around and took a closer look at it. The picture looked wonderful, and I thought that I would be able to put the puzzle together in no time. I bought it and took it home, and once I started working on the puzzle, an hour went by without me making any progress. At that point, I put the puzzle pieces back in the box and put it in the closet.

While laying in the bed at home, I remembered the puzzle in the closet and pulled it out and dumped the pieces on the table in front of my recliner. While concentrating on the puzzle, I forgot all about my back. The pieces started to make sense as the time passed. I grouped all of the edge pieces together to make a complete border, and then filled everything else in slowly. My back is feeling practically healed now.
