I am grateful for my sense of sight because…

I’m able to see flowers, like the arctic starflower pictured, in nature in their full potential. (Even if the iPhone camera fails to convey it properly.)

And it makes me grateful for my glasses, without which I would watch the world through a fog.

Sentimental things


My first pair of rain boots. Aren’t they fashionable?

I currently have them on display in my living room among other decorative bits and pieces. (I suspect they may have to go at a certain point though as the rubber has not held up well over the past 29 years.)

It figures that the year I got this, was the summer almost without rain – but the summer I got my own paddle pool, it rained constantly.
