"Geez!!!"...that's my head summarizing yesterday's migraine. I experience a visual aura before the headache hits and was tagged while getting ready for work yesterday morning. Consequently, I spent the day at home but thankfully feel much better today. Now I know it's a stretch to find something positive in a migraine, but there's a certain "abstract" beauty in the visual aura. While looking for online information way back when, I was quite surprised (and relieved) to find  many migraine sufferers/artists have captured the aura experience in artwork. I say "relieved" as it somehow brings comfort to know you're not alone. The photo (above) is taken from the following site: and is similar to what I experience, but rather than a white spot, I see black.

So today, as I rejoin the ranks of the functional living, I hope to enjoy the weekend and get a few things accomplished around the house. I was delighted to see our little Magnolia tree has begun to bloom along with various lillies....flora makes all things better in my book.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by...Along the way.
