Dry Season

I hate this time of year. I've always been very sensitive to the change of moisture in the air-- or at least my throat and lips are. The back of my throat feels like I've been chugging a sandpaper cocktail and it kept me away most of the night. I swallowed several spoonfuls of honey and two cups of milk, but no luck. It was about 3 am until I was able to get to sleep.

Lips... the lips I can handle most of the time. During the day, I swear by Chapstick Moisture (or, as I call it, "the blue one"). At night I slather on the Vaseline maybe three or four times.

Boo on fall/winter.



  1. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. Irina: Thanks. I'll be better when I can get a vaporizer.

    anonymous: Uh, yup.

    Could you please remove the link to the photo on my website? I've worked very hard for 12 years to build the site, and have spent thousands of dollars and immense amounts of time and trouble to get these photos. I also went through the trouble of asking that blogs and forums not to link to my photos in the copyright information at the bottom of the page. Is there any reason you should not have at least a minimum of respect for the work of others?

    I'm very sorry your lips were chapped.
