From a Seed Grows…

On a quiet Tuesday evening, with the car in the shop and my finger healing (hopefully) from a second-degree grease-splatter burn, I share something simple and soothing.

I used Canon EOS 20D to capture the Featured Image, which is composed as shot and presented without alteration. This one is a JPG straight from the camera. Vitals, aperture and shutter speed manually set: f/7.1, ISO 400, 1/500 sec, 100mm; 3:19 p.m. EDT, June 24, 2007. Lens: Canon EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM.

I got to laugh about the perils of government-supported healthcare. The first two urgent cares couldn’t accept my insurance, which was obtained from a provider through Covered California. Oh, but they accepted Medicaid and Medicare! I ended up at a minute clinic, which is a service step down from urgent care but more than ready enough to treat my wound.

What wonderful walking weather, today, but bouncing among treatment facilities soaked up time and whipped up stress exhaustion. Hence, the relaxing photo.
