Lilly is has written an amazing new fable. I hope you enjoy her words and their power as much as I did.

A p r o n h e a d -- Lilly

I walked along the twisting path, a steep drop off on my right, a rocky wall on my left.  Every step was measured and sure to avoid the rocks and shards of pottery from discarded vessels, which held all manner of useless stuff.  I, too, some time back had found it necessary to shift my load and only carry necessary water, food, and the book of directions.  The further I had walked the thin, grey road, the more unnecessary certain once vital stores had become.

Common though it was to come upon cast offs, I was a bit surprised when rounding a rather sharp bend, I saw by the side of the path a piece of red flesh, ripe and dripping, pulsing and heaving almost in time with my labored breaths.  This was not the useless gems and mementos of the old life down the hill.  This seemed alive and perhaps…

Test Result: Negative for Pertussis

Many of you commented on my previous post, some good, some bad. The good news is the test returned a negative result. The bad news the test is only 50% accurate.

The good news, by the third day on the antibiotics I was feeling better. The bad news is I still have a cough. This is a picture of how I feel. Kind of squinty-eyed from being so tired from not sleeping well with a non-stop cough.

Bear-ly Me. I'm sick and feel like a bear.

The best news is the number of people who have thanked me for sharing my story. They have already gotten their boosters and are spreading the word about how important it is. The vaccinations we received and completed at age six are no longer protecting us. Be proactive and get vaccinated. Protect yourself and your loved ones. Hey, be a good sport and protect the passengers on your next plane flight, or on the train, or at the restaurant, the grocery store, or where you pick up your dry cleaning.

As of Monday I am no longer contagious, if I ever was. I do wish I would bounce back to great health quickly. In the mean-time I want to share with you a happy photo. Pardon me, but I have punned a great artist and call this piece Starry Light.

Bright, colorful star lights, Starry Lights is the name of this piece.

Starry Night

Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight.

Wish I may, wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight.

I’m wishing all of you good dreams and good health.
