If you want to learn more about Epilepsy please click on the button above for the Purple Day site. I learned about Purple Day on Michele's beautiful blog - The Rocky Mountain Retreat. Michele is a very talented photographer and I have enjoyed visiting her blog over the past few years. She also has epilepsy and has tonic clonic (gran mal) seizures. I have learned a lot from Michele about epilepsy. She has posted that you don't put a spoon in someone's mouth when they are having a seizure and about other common misconceptions.
On March 26 (today), people are asked to wear purple to support epilepsy awareness. Purple Day was started by nine year old Cassidy Meagan of Nova Scotia, Canada in 2008 to help increase awareness about epilepsy world wide.I decided to look through my photo archives for purple shots so I could drape my blog in purple so to speak. The first shot of my clematis which was lost in a drought many years prior to our most recent drought was taken in 1999 with my first digital camera. The other shots were taken in the summers of 2007 and 2008.I hope you will go to the Purple Day site to learn more about epilepsy. Also, if you have never visited The Rocky Mountain Retreat, Michele's photographs of her beautiful Rocky Mountains never fail to lift my spirits.
