Poem: Makeup

For a fellow blogger and for the Ragtag Daily Prompt: Still. I am thinking of both stillness and of still photography. A photograph. For a still, I think that it is usually posed. I like taking portraits when people are not posed.

This is also for Norm2.0’s Thursday doors, and also today, taken at around noon. The snow is disappearing very fast, but there are still treacherous ice patches in any shadows and it will all freeze again tonight…

I am having an Interesting Week, with simultaneous dental/medical/eye stuff. I get to see my FOURTH doctor this week this afternoon. Emergency root canal two days ago and antibiotics and pain medicines, so I am on the wrong side of the stethoscope this week. I would rather work than see doctors, wouldn’t you?

Distant light

I am trying to catch that distant line of light on the horizon as the light recedes….

….I am so grateful that the basic healthcare requirements will not be dismantled, joy!

….and now on the horizon I hope for vision and light and single payer, medicare for all. My Veteran patients this week are afraid, that Veterans Choice will be taken down. I am afraid too….and still, I hope for vision and light.
