It was the Stealth Reopening of Bodin Historic Photo. Late this Saturday morning I was driven to my gallery on Main Street, Gloucester after 4 months in hospitals and rehab. I was safely wheeled in, and proceeded to organize the desk area. My friends and assistants for the day cleaned, swept, and arranged items in the showroom. They also took out a good amount of trash and recycling. Thanks Donna, Valerie, Kathy, and Janet. Also rewarding was a Virgilios Eggplant Supreme sub.
The visit was rewarding, stressful, and tiring. This was a big step and a test of my rehabilitation. It’s difficult to operate a gallery from a wheelchair or walker. Tomorrow it’s back to physical therapy, continuing down the road toward walking. The gallery will be open Saturdays from 11 am to 5 pm, and more days as my stamina and mobility improve. My next visit will earn me a spicy Italian meal from Virgilio’s, a third generation Gloucester bakery. Pictured above on cover: L-R: Donna, Janet, and Valerie.
