I'm a pretty visual person. I relate to images, often more than words. So, not surprisingly, I'm digging on the diabetes made visable pool. I'm loving the collective image of diabetes that's emerging. And I've been surprised a number of times, by the images I've seen there. Some have made me sad, others made me laugh. But what's been the most interesting to me, is how many of the images have been so familiar and yet different at the same time. The bottom of someone else's purse that reminds me of mine. The drawer full of backup test strip boxes, far neater than mine, but a similar storage choice, nonetheless. And then there's the photo below which inspired me to take the one above. I'd never really looked at my bedside table in terms of diabetes, before I looked at scott's. And then I saw mine. So different and yet, well, very much the same. Diabetes stuff, electronic stuff, personal stuff. All mixed together, like real life. That's one of the reasons why I like pictures so much. They reveal stuff I wouldn't normally notice. Truths. Ideas. Or just moments that can reveal something I didn't really see as clearly before. Like how different we are and yet so alike, because we're all human, and in our cases, also diabetic.
