Last Wednesday in a 1:1 meeting with my manager, I mentioned having the “blahs” and needing to take some time to myself that had nothing to do with chemotherapy or tests or hospitals. (The last two weeks’ worth of “vacation” I took I was recovering from chemotherapy, so they didn’t really count.)
My manager suggested I clear my calendar for this week and take it off. How could I say no to that? I couldn’t clear Monday, but the rest of the week was mine for the taking. Apart from a miserable rainy Tuesday, the balance of the week has been gloriously sunny and warm (for late October).
With all this great weather and the rest of the family working or at school, what could I possibly do with myself? I think we know the answer to that. Time for a little phototherapy!
I made this photo on the Adàwe Crossing, a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Rideau River and connects the Overbrook and Sandy Hill neighbourhoods.
The reflective ball is one of a pair, as part of an art installation called A View from Two Sides by Ottawa artist Kenneth Ernig. If you look carefully, you can see the other ball behind my head on the opposite side of the bridge.
