1400

The beautiful car above is the Fiat 1400 from 1950.  I remember this car vividly as it is the vehicle driven in one of the best foreign films I have ever had the pleasure to view, Wild Strawberries, directed by Ingmar Bergman and released in 1957. The film is an amazing portrayal  involving an elderly professor on a road trip of sorts.  Because it tackles difficult questions about life, self-discovery and meaning of human existence, I consider the film to be one of Bergman's most emotional, optimistic and best films.

Yet, I do not want to speak only of this film.  Instead, I chose the above image because I have been fortunate enough to set another milestone in my fitness  regime.  When I finished my 5 miles this morning, I have now gone 1400 days in a row without ever missing a single day in my walking efforts!!!!  I am very pleased with this length of consistency in my efforts.  I value consistency greatly.

I haven't seen the movie or the car but it just so happens that I'm posting pictures of a rare car tomorrow.

Good job on the walking, when are you going to walk across the states?
