Following Up on the Blue Toes
The colors in my post yesterday about my blue toes made me think about this image that I made in the organic market one Saturday. Now don't try to connect the garlic and my toes. Just think about the colors....blue toenails, pink skin.
I've been a little surprised by the response I received about the blue toenails in comments on Reservations for One and Facebook where my blog shows up as a Networked blog. Some cheered me on and some were kind of like, yuck and some kind of wondered if I wasn't going over the edge. But one comment I really liked was from my friend Ellen who pointed out an article in the New York Times about the short story writer Alice Munro who is 81 years old. At the time of the interview for the article, Munro had electric blue toenails. So I'm in good company with some of a certain age. I'd like to say I was in good company with a famous short story writer but that would definitely be stretching it.
