Hi everyone! I have entitled this post "silence and laughter", but for more reasons than you might perhaps think! Firstly, the Just for Laughs video done with the group posing as Montreal Police officers is silent in the sense that you don't hear any talking in any of these videos. The laughter is obvious, as they are funny. The second meaning of silence is that I finally got a fairly good night's sleep last night, only waking up twice to cough.
My cold is breaking, my immune system has kicked in and is fighting it...and fighting hard! I am coughing less, and it is a drier cough, so I am very grateful for this! I made a nice pot of soup tonight with lentils, carrots, little potatoes, onions and garlic, and it was delicious, just what I needed. Thank you all so much for your responses to my last post and for your well wishes, I really appreciate it very much. I feel a good support from you all on just letting this cold take its own course without the use of antibiotics. You know, I often wonder how people coped with colds and ailments before antibiotics were created. Naturally, of course, using things like ginger, honey, onions, garlic, lemon, etc. As well, I trust food, however, I do not trust medication...don't get me wrong, I do take some meds, but only where it is really necessary! With many medications there are side effects; however, there are no side effects of using good food, and this helps me a lot more. What else helps me a lot is staying positive and happy, because when I keep my spirits up I find that I heal faster and better than if I am down.
The photo I am sharing today is one I took in the summer of 2011. It isn't as sharp as the one I shared in my last post, but I think it has a beauty of its own. You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.
