It’s been an interesting slight roller coaster for me since getting my 1st of 2 Moderna Covid shots recently!
Initially, yesterday, Sheila and I were pretty even par, though I think she was less fatigued than me & able (and willing 😊) to do our usual Friday SilverSneakers Cardio class. My fatigue stayed with me most the day, let up in mid-afternoon, then returned with a slight heaviness.
Sheila continued as before, improving slightly in terms of tiredness but w/her shot area aching a bit more.
Me, though, unfortunately, I got downright sluggish and then, after our usual small fruit snack for the evening, started hurting. Bad. Particularly in one of my two surgical areas from couple summers ago.
This virus, Covid-19, I’d read long ago, is extremely opportunistic.
Like water, it finds the lowest point in the land.
Nothing evil about it.
Just nature working to maximize what it creates.
And it brought me to a pain in an area that ended up needing surgery nearly two years ago, not nearly as crippling, but much to similar. I called the oldest girl who’s in the medical field in Houston. She’d had a bad bout with her 2nd shot and she said she made it via 2 Tylenols every 4 hours. Sheila got me 2 Tylenols. In 30 minutes the pain abated.
In an hour I was asleep and didn’t wake til 7:30 this morning, way past my usual 5:30 am, and felt relatively refreshed.
I wasn’t bouncy with energy, but I could feel clarity in my eyes.
This is very similar to what happened to me after my 2nd Shingrix shot, though the CDC site recommended in ibuprofen, and it worked the same kind of miracle.
Our daughter strongly suggested we use the info on our shot card to report the adverse reaction I had, as it would help the doctors etc know the range of reactions.
Back of our cards says to go to the Vaccine Adverse Effect Reporting System (VAERS) at –
Will be doing that today.
We’re all in this together, and sharing our knowledge has never been easier in the entire history of our existence (that I know of, lol!) – so I feel it’s the right thing to do.
So did my daughter know of other folks who got this ill on the 1st shot? Yes. More common on the 2nd, but evidently, if there’s a variation response possible, it exists 😊 Again, Mother Nature at her best – truly actually 💜
I’ll post more if and when more info etc develops –
Thanks so much everyone!
ps – do I have any regrets getting my vaccine? absolutely not 😊

- January 22, 2022 – Rethinking (re-engineering?) How I Post About Images I Upload to #FineArtAmericaMy most emerging challenge as I ramp up being able to and wanting to paint more often – each day if possible – is time. Not a big surprise for all the folks with lots of interests and/or commitments, even for us 70+ year olds, lol! Though, surprisingly, just as difficult to navigate the demands and siren calls of attention in our lives. Kinda nice though, that kind of problem has persisted from when….

That’s a mouthful, lol! But pretty accurate in term of my process! 😊 First, I laid in a faint yellow base, a mix of watercolor and acrylic. Next I laid over a….
- January 20, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 2As mentioned in my prev post, my then problem and now radical solution in re to a painting I’d struggled with, done the most I felt I could, and was still quite unhappy with, began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, re listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d wanted to add a violet toned painting to one of my ongoing series, one involving 12×24 panoramic monochromatic impressionist abstract work. It began well enough, with….
- January 19, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 1It began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, about listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d already begun a new violet lay-in, destined, I thought, to be called Violet Impressionist Abstract 1; all along the lines of my other mostly-or-all monochromatic impressionist abstract work I’ve posted about ( my red and blue samples further down ).
- January 18, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Working the Painting Language – The Visual Path, via Dianne MizeDianne’s continuing series of tips and samples of painting’s language of line and shapes and so much more, including, as per this reblog of her most current post, The Visual Path, have been a source of inspiration for me for quite a while now, and this is no exception. She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.

- January 16, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, Fantasy Landscape – New 16×20 #LyricalAbstract #AcrylicPaintingFantasy Landscape is currently residing at the Old Bakery & Emporium in downtown Austin across from the Texas State Capital. It’s a super playful acrylic I didn’t realize would be “so much” a landscape as it turned out, lol! All part of the “discovery” process inside each artist, often call the landscape inside, probably in more senses than one, as Joan Mitchell has alluded to.
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
