You don't notice it so much if you lay your arm against a white wall or wear white clothes.
Last night I had a Horrific nose bleed during which I honestly thought I was going to faint. I saw myself in the mirror. White! Now That was white, friends. And if I went around looking like that all the time, white might be a good adjective. It was almost scary - I was Really white. By the time I looked again - a number of hours later - I think I had a bit of a fever, my cheeks were rosy and I was back to my usual color.
Feeling better tonight - and looking forward to tomorrow - with blessings and still curious . . .
