Stop and Smell

Judging by my Facebook feed the presidential election result in the US of A means the end of the world as we know it. The screeching of the lefties easily overpowers the cicada chorus in the tree outside my window. The victors are on the back foot, secretly gloating, yet uneasy about the future they wanted so badly, and got.

At times like this it is appropriate for a diabete to close the curtains to the cyber world, and to focus on what counts.

Fasting glucose this morning: 4.6 mmol. Normal!

And take nice pictures with a better than Leica camera: the diminutive Fujifilm X70.

Much to be happy about!

  1. If only the world were as normal as your fasting glucose Rien, and politics displayed the sort of colours you capture in your pix, instead of the dreary black and white.

    1. Thanks, Edi. I appreciate your support!



    2. Haha, love the post and this comment. Leave it to the Americans to vote in a leader with a parochial mentality.



  2. I was, for the most, amused by the spectacle unfolding on the other side of the Pacific ocean. The mere notion of Drumph becoming their president was laughable! Now, it’s not so funny… People do stupid things when they feel their backs are against a wall. But, your photos and your good news are a breath of fresh air! More, MORE! 🙂
