Thursday report

This morning I had an early interview. It's Alzheimer's Awareness Month and the woman I interviewed lost her father, mother, and husband to the disease within the span of a few years. 

I'm not sure I've ever met anyone as strong. 

She smiles, but there is a hurt inside her as deep as a bruise.  I'm guessing the story will run on Sunday.

On the lighter side, we woke up to rain this morning. It's the first time in a month. As the coffee dripped, I walked down to feed the chicks and check on the garden. The tomatoes seemed to be dancing. 

I noticed a root that I'd clipped with the lawnmower last year. I know I photograph weird things, but I thought it looked interesting.


  1. I suspect her hurt is deeper and more painful than any bruise. And less likely to ease with time.
    Love that root photo.

  2. As they say: 'Man is stronger than steel'.

  3. Oh, that poor woman. It takes a strong person to go through that and still smile. I'm sure she appreciate talking to you about it. It a lot better than keeping it all inside.
    I hope the story will do her good and many others who are going through such suffering.
    Now that root is famous but I'm more interested in the little pebbles. I'm always amazed at the different colors I find in the garden.
    Hugs, Julia
