A few weeks ago, I posted about Miroslav Sasek, a brilliant artist who has several travel books from the 50's and 60's. Yesterday, while at the GoodWill, I found an original hardcover of "This is Rome." I scanned in the cover above. The dust jacket is a slightly shredded, but the book itself is in great shape. A well spent $2.49.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
