MRI – am I senile?

I have been attending the Gerontology clinic and from there my Dr. sent me to have an MRI with contrast to check for visual signs of Alzheimer’s or senility/dementia. I have been having great difficulty in remembering names – nouns really, both proper and improper and seemed to have failed the test he gave me.

The results showed that there were no markers that would make me a candidate for dementia though there are some long words that need clarifying.

Above are just a few of the images culled from the viewer programme, Andrew fiddled with the settings for different effects.

President Sequoia in a snow storm

3200 years old, 247 feet high – the equivalent of a skyscraper – the sequioia tree ‘President’ is currently the second largest in the world. ‘President’ has 2 billion leaves and measures 27 ft in diameter.   Photographed in Sequoia National Park by National Geographic magazine photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols for the December 2012 issue.  The final photograph is a mosaic of 126 images. 

 

Two Types of Dreamers — Lonely Blue Boy

There are two types of dreamers: the first is very sensitive but creative and the second is very secretive but adaptive, and I think I am capable of being both.
