Low tide beauty on a good day

ImageHere’s Gen walking with Cole at low tide – one of her rare outings on what must have been a good day. This amazingly low tide comes with the full moon and I wish it were like that every day so that we could take advantage of it more often. It was passed the golden hour but still, I think it’s an amazing photograph.


Amazing companionship!

Companions my daughter Gen can’t live without.

1) Blakey the Indian Ringneck. He’s now one year old and talks up a storm. His voice is gentle and a pleasure to hear. We think he’s a male and soon he should be having a ring around his neck! I got him for her so to give her a reason to fight her connective tissue disorder.


2) Gen’s dog Hailey. She’s a cross between a Rottweiler and a GSD. She turns 7 in November!!! She says the word “Rottweiler”. She came along when I was trying to figure out what was happening with Gen. I so wanted to make her feel better. Finally, Hailey saved us all!

3) Gen’s gaming tool – Xbox controller SCUF which she says is gentle on her fingers and hands. She ordered it from the States and it’s well worth the price plus the colors and a ton of other options are all custom! The SCUF controller is the proof that Gen is controlling her illness rather than it being the other way around.

Fleeting: the beautiful sign of a wonderful day

Gen's recent drawing with her Bamboo tablet.

Gen created this chicken drawing this week using her Wacom Bamboo Tablet. It’s a wonderful little piece of technology she loves as it means less strain on her hands. Using a pencil is becoming more and more difficult.

This image is the sign of a wonderful day and perhaps of hope in managing the pain that comes with connective tissue disorders as well as her ability to sit long enough to fight back her most recent difficulties in standing or sitting for any amount of time!
