damn lungs

Listening to: "Save it for Later" by The English Beat.

Really not much more to post. I poked around on Deviant Art yesterday and got a free account. That place impresses me with its policing. There could really be some utter crap on there, because, hey, art is in the eye of the beholder. But it's actually amazing how many talented photographers, anime artists, sketchers, and others there are on there. And none that I had ever heard of (not that I'm huge on such things as anime, but still). A true place for the "starving artist", it would seem.

One such artist is a model from around Erie. She is 20, and has cystic fibrosis, a severe, fatal, lung disease that requires transplantation, which, in itself, can bring on fatal issues. Most of her stuff is modeling, some of the traditional kind, but some that exposes her daily life with the disease, such as surgical scars, protective masks, and just plain unhidden fatigue. She is doing this as a means of paying for her transplant, which is expected to cost around $10,000. She is less than a tenth of the way there.

Kina is, with the support of her husband, very busy with this, and with tending to her medical priorities. She leads a very full, sometimes frustrating, but very complete life as a person.

http://spirit-of-kina.deviantart.com/gallery/ is her gallery.

http://www.fightingtobreathe.com is her CF journey site. Both very interesting links.

As for me, I may or may not head out to Carnegie Mellon this afternoon to watch the women's soccer match versus Capital University, of Columbus. It's sure been a while since I've actually gone out and seen a soccer match. But my lungs are still a mess from a weird cold, and the clouds look threatening. Not sure yet. I do need some food though. I skipped out on dinner last night because I was coughing to the point of gagging. I do have a hankering for a big bowl of vanilla yoghurt topped with grape nuts. Plus, I need to finish off my "bacon/cheese/fries/steak" pizza.

Here's a weather report.
