Note all the greens and blues and blacks. However, the Orthodox cross is not a bruise as a sweet little old lady thought. 🙂 It’s a tattoo. Don’t worry; I’m wearing a brace to stabilize the foot and ankle, which has, thankfully, made it far easier for me to walk. As an artist, I’ve rather enjoyed watching the shape of my foot and the colors change. As a person, well, this has just been a huge inconvenience.
At least I’m getting to enjoy this gorgeous weather!!!
