How does your dexterity compare to this woman’s?

We’re on our last days of a river cruise on the Seine. On Sunday we’ll take a train across the Chunnel into London, where I’ll have my first visit to England. As much as I am sure I will have enjoyed France, I am sure I will appreciate being somewhere where I can understand the language.

Over the past twenty years I’ve had two back operations that are supposed to make movement easier. I’ve been going to a physical therapist for exercises to increase my strength and recently to get some exercises to do on the long plane rides of my vacation. Nevertheless, I have absolutely no expectations that I will ever be able — or have ever been able — to do what this gymnast does.

What a wonderful demonstration of the potential of the human body when genes and age are on your side.

How did anyone ever come up with this routine? Amazing control of the ball.
