Day 1589: Abstracts in pastels

Yesterday, my friend Deb and I had good times in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where we saw my sister Ellen’s “Abstract in Pastel” at a photography show.

The light reflections added some additional abstracts in pastels there, so here’s “Abstract in Pastel” from the photography show book:

Deb and I both concretely voted for “Abstract in Pastel” in  the people’s choice poll at the photography show. My admiration for my sister’s photographic skills is not abstract at all.

I saw many more abstracts in pastels during the rest of the day, which I shall concretely display here.

I am concretely choosing this song for today’s abstract pastel post:

Now for some concrete thanks for my sister Ellen, my friend Deb, Plymouth, the B-52’s, rocks, lobsters, bunny rabbits,  cats, and everyone and everything else contributing to this abstract-in-pastel post.  Also, special abstract pastel thanks for you — of course! —  here and now.

Day 1403: Ever Vigilant

Yesterday, as I was waiting for my ever vigilant doctors to replace my recalled Implantable Cardiac Device (ICD), my ever vigilant sister Ellen showed me calendars of her awesome photographs, which included this:

Your ever vigilant blogger chose that for today’s topic, mostly because her new incision was bleeding SO MUCH last night and this morning that she was vigilant enough to return to the hospital so that her ever vigilant doctors could look at it.

That’s why your ever vigilant blogger is so late posting her latest vigilant post today. If my ever vigilant readers are worried, I want to vigilantly reassure them that I am going to be okay.

As ever, I will be vigilant about including other photos I took yesterday (in ever-vigilant chronological order):

That ever vigilant teabag is reminding us that love has no fear and no vengeance. ¬†With all the fearful things I’ve been dealing with lately, I LOVE that reminder.

I am ever vigilant to look for music that fits my daily blog posts. Since I’ve been “talking about my troubles” with blood, sweat, and tears lately, how about this?

 

I am ever vigilant to remember to thank those who help me create my posts (including my talented sister Ellen) and also you — of course! — for being vigilant enough to be here, now.
