"Form Vs. Function..."


...my newest tree of life-illustrated in my Zen Journal...
drawn "ink straight in" and digitally flipped.
The inspiration for her
came from a wonky week of days spent dealing with
kidney stones, migraines, CT scans
and
and medical appointments.
I think
things are on the mend...I have a follow up
appointment today...
guess I will have to wait and see (hear)
what the good doc has to say.
Definitely not in blogging mode...funny how
quickly I can get thrown off my
game.

"The art of medicine
consists in amusing the patient
while nature cures
the disease."
~Voltaire

When I first looked at your tree of life I was thinking a sea creature of some sort. Now that you have mentioned kidney stones I see other things in this tree. I can see your pain even though you have made it appear beautiful. Get well..Big hugs.

I'm so sorry you've been feeling that way! The migraines alone are enough to put you over the edge, but then to have the other stuff too is just too much! I love your quote...I think that every time someone tells me a "new, sure-thing cure" for migraines. I told one person to stop. I've tried it all and I'm tired of buying stuff that doesn't work.

oh my, I'm so sorry to hear this!

I was a long time migraine sufferer until they went away as a bonus to my hysterectomy. I guess mine were estrogen fueled. Ugh. Awful.
I can't even imagine kidney stones! I love the kidneys and spine in your drawing btw ;)
It looks like an elaborate candelabra!

I hope your appt goes well today. Feel better soon!
