If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it;
every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.
My scar is beautiful. It looks like an arrow.

OK, I wan't sure where I was going to go with my 2013 Diabetes Art Day Project - I really didn't.
So on Sunday Morning I poured myself a second cup of coffee, set out a piece of blank paper on my work table and dumped a portion of the contents of my diabetes Bio Hazard Container out.
And it kind of felt like I was looking down at an unfinished puzzle - even though it was just a blank piece of paper.
And as I stared at the blank paper I stopped thinking about puzzle pieces.
Instead I started grabbing test strips and making arrows out of them.
At first those arrows represented the directions that my blood sugars were going - A la CGM.
And I started writing words and numbers about the direction of those arrows - And how I feel when my diabetes arrows are going in either direction.
Then I took a picture of what I'd made.. And as I looked at the picture I began to think of the arrows as shooting arrows - And about being BRAVE and never giving up.
As a Diabetes Markswoman, my arrows don't always land exactly where I want them to.
Sometimes my arrows are way off target, other times they are right on the mark - And for all sorts of reasons that make sense and even more reasons that don't make any sense at all.
But no matter what, I still have to keep aiming my arrows.... And shooting in all directions - Because my diabetes targets are always moving... and changing..... and they will never stop.
As a Diabetes Markswoman I am always taking aim - And that task is never ending~
