It is so funny we celebrated October family birthdays (we have 3) last night and my cousin was talking about a guy...actually many many people...who choose to be envenomated. I mean lay down in a hospital bed surrounded by medics and have 2 or 3 venoms injected into their I.V. It sounded crazy to me until I said outloud..."I don't think I would choose to have toxins shot into my body...wait...nevermind...I have been doing that at least every three weeks for the last 2 years...my bad...it makes complete sense!" I guess the difference is I do it to fend of cancer and possibly death...these "crazy" folks do it for shits and giggles. There I said it...I found the difference...without a difference my choice to do what I do would be crazy. Who in their right mind "chooses" to feel like roadkill for the better part of a month...this girl...and I will continue to do it until some vital organ actually gives out...or they find a miracle drug.
On to a cheerier subject. A couple of weeks ago, my mom and I met my aunt, cousin and her 3 children at the Arboretum. They have been showcasing some of Dale Chihuly's blown glass for a couple of months and it wraps up at the beginning of November...so we needed to get it seen. We have another trip planned for tomorrow so The Bug can see it. The shapes and the colors are amazing...and to mix them with all kinds of flowers and water...it was so healing for me to see. I think it was good to wait, because we opted out of the heat and into all the great fall decor. I can't do it justice with words so here are some of my pictures.
Love and light,
