Reading Around the Galaxy

images.jpgIt’s been a tough month for reading. I was sick for almost three weeks and am still contending with bouts of low blood pressure. Note that low BP as well as low glucose turns normal vision into an endless parade of exploding stars and solar flares making it impossible to read.
