The Basket of Life

Snapshot of a basket where I keep my stock of prescrption medicines. As age creeps in, the size of the heap of medicines keeps growing higher and higher. Without these medicines I wonder how many days I could survive into the future. It’s chilling to know how vulnerable and dependent we become as we age. C’est la vie! Photo by ¬©Omar Upegui R.

  1. But what a blessing it is that we have so many good drugs to help us out. If it weren’t for my eye drops, I might not be blind now, but I certainly wouldn’t be seeing as well. Etc. I’m lucky — other than that, I mostly need bandaids from all the nicks and cuts at work!

  2. The body is an amazing machine, nonetheless, we have to take good care of it with additional aids.

    We also use eye drops to moisturize our eyes. The aging process produces dryness in the eyes. That specific medicine is kept inside the fridge.

    I liked your third blog post about autumn. Read it twice so would could sink in smoothly.

    Take Care,


  3. We do what we can to stay happy and healthy. I am at a conference this week where my customers are showcasing their research into a variety of diseases. These guys are doing some amazing work, I can’t wait to see what the next big thing is.

  4. Hello Desley,

    Happy and healthy are to beautiful words. Research into a variety of diseases is very important. The spread of the Ebola disease is not a pretty situation. I hope we could get rid of diseases of this nature.

    Cancer, Parkinson disease, and Alzheimer’s disease have been with us for quite some time and have done a lot of damage to our loved ones. With all our advances in technology and science, we should be able to understand the nature of these diseases and destroy them.

    That could be beginning of the next big thing. Thank you for your comments and best of luck at your conference.
