Birdy stood and stared at it for ages, and I found myself doing the same.
The sculpture is 27 feet tall, made up of a xylophone, wind chimes, and so many chutes and pulleys and moving parts that whirred and influenced one another, sending billiard balls on a journey through the sculpture, rarely taking a predictable path and creating this cacophonous yet controlled chaos that made focusing on one part dizzying but watching it in motion made me respect all the work that went into crafting and maintaining it.
The weekend is SO CLOSE. I’m wearing a path through this busy Friday with a Friday Six:
The FDA is listening, and if you want them to hear from you, you can join the discussion on Monday. “Whether you want to just listen to the interview to get informed, ask relevant questions to better understand the medical device regulatory process or just speak your mind on the newest draft guidance document … you should join in the conversation.”Join the FDA and the DOC for a discussion about glucose meters and test strips on Monday, March 31st. You need to register to join this discussion, and you can do that here.
Most of the time (read: every other time except this one), the cannula is laced through the insertion needle on the insets for my insulin pump infusion sets. But this infusion set was attacked by diabetes gremlins, because the cannula made a run for it before I even opened the spaceship pod:
Insulin pump inset … er, outset.
Scott, on Facebook, quipped it best: “It appears that instead of an Inset, they gave you an Outset.”
UPDATED: I opened the set this morning. No tubing, either. Gremlins!!
(There are words, but they are photos of words, so that’s a technical win, yes? These are some of the search terms that brought people to Six Until Me this morning, and they pretty much run the gamut.)
