the hot desert sun
kisses pink and red blooms that
grow from twisted spines
This is the only picture I could find in my archive today that inspired me. I took it in New Mexico about five years ago. I love New Mexico- and still dream that one day I can move the family away from the ridiculously over priced bay area and settle here among the red dirt and amazing sunsets.
On another note, I was better for a couple of days but now I am sick again. I got a chest x-ray this morning, and the Doctor confirmed I have pneumonia. It is so hard to be sick with children. They need you, regardless of whether you have a 104 fever or feel like someone is stabbing you in the chest. So, that is what I am struggling with today. I guess I am the spiny cactus- but I still need to find ways to nurture my little blossoms.
Anyone have pneumonia before? What do you do about the chest pain?
