USK: Pfizer Vaccination

I am just now coming out of the week+ reaction I had to the Pfizer vaccine.
Total flu-like symptoms with a kick — a muscle spasm in my groin, legs, feet and underarms which went on for five days — along with weird dreams and dizziness.  Nevertheless, I am happy for the vaccine…

We won’t go places for a long time, but if we had to we would feel less fear.
I want to see what the country and the variants do before being comfortable.
We have so much to lose.

I drew a lot of this at the convention center, above,
then added watercolors later.

Later that night I wanted an antidote image, so sketched Eucalyptus Trees
from a photo provided by a friend.  That was where I wanted to be that night,
under that canopy.  Eucalyptus reminds me of home.

And more journaling that I feel comfortable sharing…
reading Buddhist teachers, finding inspiration.

  1. First Pfizer dose was pretty much nothing for me. Second dose… holy hell. It was the worst response I’ve ever had from a vaccination. But at least I was over it after a few days.

    Warm greetings from Montreal Canada! Having begun my journey using fountain pen inks in January, I have been reading the last two years’ worth of your blog with great pleasure. I want to acknowledge that I have been strongly influenced by everything I have found there, in particular with your generosity in giving and sharing. I want to thank you for all of this. Your absence from the blog for two months actually worried me (a complete stranger!) and was relieved seeing you back online again.

    BTW I got my first Astra-Zeneca shot 10 days ago and only had two days of aches. Happy but not looking forward to the second one!

    Do take care and remember that there some of us out there who truly care. Namaste!


    • Wow! Thank you thank you thank you — you have no idea how this comment moved me. I taught design and architecture (in a past life) and this blog fulfills that urge to share info — but I sometimes wonder who is on the other end. I understand about worry — I have written a couple of these notes to people I technically don’t “know” and was worried about in their absence. Kate


I love hearing from visitors!
