Red Blood Cells under an electron microscope

They look like little cinnamon candies here, but they're actually the most common type of blood cell in the human body - red blood cells (RBCs). These biconcave-shaped cells have the tall task of carrying oxygen to our entire body; in women there are about 4 to 5 million RBCs per micro liter (cubic millimeter) of blood and about 5 to 6 million in men. People who live at higher altitudes have even more RBCs because of the low oxygen levels in their environment.



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I began my very own outline for a design for living when I first worked the steps with my sponsor; since that time, it has evolved and been modified as necessary

for productive meetings yesterday with sponsees - they keep me honest and growing

that I learn so much just by watching and listening

for some lovely and comfortable cooler weather that arrived overnight
