Day 359 – Our Skeleton Key

Art Apple - Day Three Hundred Fifty NineA skeleton key has come to symbolize something that can unlock a mystery.

Sometimes I think that Ankylosing Spondylitis will always remain somewhat of an enigma to me.

I wish I could unlock each door I have to pass through on this journey with my health and know what was on the other side. I wish we all had a magic key – an AS key to be a symbol or talisman to help us get through times of change with courage and strength. It might look something like this!

Until tomorrow.


Day 359 was created in gold ink and watercolor.

*** I’m stunned and awed by the support that is coming in. A big thank you to everyone who has donated to the Apple-A-Thon fundraiser.

*** We received our first corporate donation today in the amount of $500 from BJC Health in Australia! who will be putting their commissioned apple in the lobby of their Spondyloarthritis Clinic – too cool.

*** Thank you Tom Contrino for your $150 donation!

    That’s a keeper for sure. I’m not even going to entertain the idea of getting it inked onto my body though.
