Garden of Surprises

Charlie loaded me, my camera and my wheelchair in the car and took me on a photo outing. It was a beautiful day. He took me to one of my favorite spots, Mercer Garden. I was so thankful to be out snapping shots somewhere besides inside my house. :)

Since I broke my right foot a couple of weeks a go I have had to explore the world within my home for macro. This is my spoiled cat, Bindilu. I know it is a sissy name for a male, but when we first adopted him (he was abandoned by a neighbor) I thought he was female because he didn't have...well you get the point. :)

Chair of Wheels

I thought this
chair of wheels
to be my grief,
but it quickly
taught my whining lips
that with each turn
it brought me freedom.

I broke my right foot a couple of weeks a go. I was working in the garden and got my foot wrapped around the electrical chord to a small fountain. Trying to extricate myself ended up with me breaking a bone. I was alone at the time so I managed to drive myself to the emergency room where I was given the news of the break and sent home on crutches. I couldn't navigate worth a darn with the things and my husband bought me a wheelchair. I was all whiny about the whole event when I realized the very chair I perceived as my handicap gave me independence to navigate my world for the most part without assistance. Thus my whining ceased.
