DIABETES

I have Type I diabetes. One day, after pricking my finger to learn my blood sugar level, I smeared it on an ink drawing. I was shocked how beautiful the red was. What cadmium red aspires to be. Looking at having diabetes positively raised issues, such as: Recycling bio-medical waste products to keep syringes out of landfills. “Tikun:” turning negative energy to good, as in creating art that reaches for immortality. And in today’s workplace, what does “paid for in blood” mean?
