Backyard Blossoms

A cool but sunny Saturday. I'm on the second day of the first dexamethasone (steroid) cycle. Feeling less tired. My sense of taste has returned and with it an appetite. Was out bright and early in North Gower with Pierre to retrieve his boat from storage and drop it off at the Manotick Marina. Then Philippe, Maryse and I went to lunch at Nate's Deli for smoked meat (glad that appetite's returning!) Then hopped next door to Steve's Music for my belated birthday present -- an acoustic guitar! Move over Eric Claption; woo-hoo. Played 3 notes today. In between caught some more early blossoms in the backyard - and one late bloomer!

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
