Through the Looking Glass

I had a dance with anaphylaxis on Saturday (accidental ingestion of kiwi in a beverage), and the after-effects were unpleasant and persistent. So I finally caved this morning and took the drugs to counteract the rabid hives which had proliferated across my neck and chest. A common side-effect of the drug is mild anxiety-like symptoms and extreme woolly-headedness (like I don’t have that already!). Cue fun take on assignment!

I’m bringing you along on my journey so you can see what it’s like, first-hand. I used two glass jars and my camera phone, and the results are pretty darn good, if I say so myself! Ready to tumble?

Square jar, on my bedroom floor

Corner of the square jar, where the camera struggled to focus

My walled patio, through the bottom of a jar
weed through glass
A weed in the cracks, seen through the mouth & body of the jar


  1. Looks like we had similar ideas today; I’ll be posting mine in a few hours.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon! I’m allergic to penicillin, and I know what you’re going through. Best wishes!


  2. I hate to say it, but the picture of the corner of the jar…..kinda looks like a uterus and Fallopian tubes! LOL
