Spring in a (Virtual) Bottle

It's the essence of Spring today in Bloomington, Indiana, and lovely enough to make the heart ache. Almost balmy; bird song on the breeze; pure blue sky; new leaves in innumerable fresh shades of green; lilacs and dogwood in bloom.

With dystopian fiction so much the fashion, I imagine the inhabitants of some bleak post-apocalyptic future, comforting or tormenting themselves with full-immersion recorded memories of better days gone by. Today is a day they would choose: to walk in the wind, surrounded by color, listening to the birds.

Give me a map reference. I'm coming over. After three weeks of Spring in London, it's wet, cold and windy. Normal weather in fact. Your end of the world sounds a whole lot better.

Roger, I just now saw your post -- on another lovely, though somewhat warmer, spring day! Head for Bloomington, IN, 47408. :-)

With this, you would be comfortable with your therapist, especially if the company would suggest
this therapist for you themselves. If you pass that exam, then you will have a demanding, yet rewarding job.
The school or university should have what is called
the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
