Default Learning to Fly!!

Yes taken from Pink Floyd's song..... those 3 words have meant alot to me over the past few years... One it was my dad's favorite band and favorite song... two when he passed I had to learn how to fly without him... and now with the last few months I have had to re learn how to fly.... With that being said I would like to show ya what I had done a few days ago and would LOVE to say it is healing just greatly.. I waited till my sugars where averaging 90-100's and of course went to a very wonderful clean and safe artist... I just simple adore it and love it!!!I have had it done now for 6 days and I am happy to say that it is very close to being healed... Woot Woot I figured that my feet will ONLY get worse and that if there was a time to do it NOW was it!!!

Hi Meg:

Cool tattoo!! I like the colours. A Well-done job. You are Very brave to have the procedure done on your foot. That sounds painful to me. Just because you have Diabetes, it doesn't mean that you will have problems with your feet. Nice to see the numbers that you've mentioned. That helps in the healing process a lot, as does colourful vegetables.

I obviously didn't know your Dad but I just have a feeling that he's either rolling his eyes because you put it on your foot or has a Big grin on his face because you did something so off-the-wall in his memory.

Talking Wow!!

WOW I say that's nice Meg , Some Stilettos would also set that foot off well wouldn't you think?? The pain has nothing over the ballet shoes that I did ware in my day's of dancing though.
With your learning to fly from your father, Just remember that he is in your heart forever and in time you will find that Nietzsche that he had.


Now that's is art as it's beautiful Meg.
