But is it Art?
Dblog Week Day 6 - Diabetes Art
This year Diabetes Art moves up from the Wildcard choices as we all channel our creativity with art in the broadest sense. Do some “traditional” art like drawing, painting, collage or any other craft you enjoy. Or look to the literary arts and perhaps write a d-poem or share and discuss a favorite quote. Groove to some musical arts by sharing a song that inspires you diabetes-wise, reworking some song lyrics with a d-twist, or even writing your own song. Don’t forget dramatic arts too, perhaps you can create a diabetes reality show or play. These are just a starting point today – there are no right or wrong ways to get creative!
Let me start off by saying I am not artistic. In the slightest. This subject made me feel itchy. But it's good to get out of your comfort zone once in awhile.
This one goes out to everyone who has asked me if Elise's diabetes is "under control now that she has a pump". Or tells me it "much be so much better now that we have a device to handle all the diabetes stuff".
I call it "The Pump Speaketh True"
