“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”

Reminders of how I'm progressing

These are things that I found in the vegetable bin while I was looking for something to eat...
This is kind of how I felt on the weekend....
This is how I felt yesterday..... a bit fuzzy, but I knew who I was.
Today I feel much better.  A little dry and wrinkled but still alive on the inside.
In a few days I hope to feel like this apple which was NOT found in the bottom of the bin. I want to feel bright, shiny and shall we say.... in the pink... or reddish pink.... or red, yellow and pink. Anyway, I'm fairly sure that this apple isn't sick, not even a discoloration. It looks the way I want to feel.
This is a Washington State apple called a Cameo. Isn't it lovely? I will eat it tonight with dinner. You know the old saying...."An apple a day keeps the yuckies away."
Obviously, I didn't eat any apples last week.... or the week before. But you can bet that they will be the mainstay of my diet from now on.

Connie, I've been living on apples for weeks!
Do you think I'm safe from the creepy crawlies??

I can empathize... I've been down for 4 days and I'm just now starting to feel like reading. And even leaving a comment. The older I get the harder it is to shake this stuff...

Glad you are feeling better.

Hi Connie, you are so sweet. I just love you to death! Thanks for your encourage, and when you feeling yuckie. Thanks for the kind words Connie. I remember you two so clearly from that class, and thought you were just the nicest ladies. Glad we have gotten to know each other better. Now eat that wonderful apple and get well! Hugs, Riki

Sounds like you are feeling some better. If the old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" by all means eat away. I like the humor in this post and the photos are great. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Yuck Yuck Yuck...thats my Three Stooges laugh and my reaction to your snaps...I find those fuzzy things, hiding in my crisper as well...they roll to the back when they see you coming and then creep up on you when you really don't want it!

So now that it's Thursday, I hope you are feeling even better than you were two days ago when you wrote this?!
Please get well soon!

Trust you are doing better today. When you feel better, be sure to throw all that bad stuff away. Appleas are good for all of us.
