Survival


I think I am going to make it. I had no idea how this stupid accident/surgery would effect me in more ways than you want to know.
I so appreciate all of your well wishes, concerns and the warmth conveyed to me. I simply have not had energy to respond but ask your forgiveness for that.
I refrained from boring you with the gory details of my dilemma. Though I was tempted.
And now, I'm ready to move forward but I'm still not bouncing.
A good sign is my art-at-the-desk today. I just spent a little time looking through an old Victoria magazine for collage scraps so I can maybe try to apply what I learned at Katie's workshop at the art retreat in early July.
And by the way, what happened to July?
I fully expect this weekend to be ART full. Again, thank you so much for being out there.
xoxoxoxo to all

  4. OHHH NOOOOO!!!! I have been absent from blogandia and did not know of this trauma you had experienced. You poor dear. Surgery!! AACACKKKKK!!! Is this worse than the grass cutting accident????? I am wishing you a speedy recovery and when it's all said and done, perhaps you will laugh about the round about way you went about getting a crooked (it didn't look crooked to me) nose fixed. There are simpler ways, my dear.

    Much love to you
    p.s. I have hoarded Victoria magazine sine the inception in 1987. Loved the old ones far better. I even got two of the same issue at times so I could cut one and save the other. It's a sickness.

  7. Not feeling on top of the world myself, I certainly understand how you are feeling. I've been checking on you and it's nice to know you are beginning to feel better. What a relief! Now, yes, play and expect! And, I'll be watching whenever you feel like doing....A BIG HUG!! pat

  8. I have been worried and I do believe anesthesia for surgery does as much to a person as the procedure that you had or anyone has. Those chemicals put me in terrible shape.

    So your on the mend and still need to rest and take care of yourself.
    Art thoughts are a good sign for sure.

    If I were near I would come and do things that you would like done, have a short chat and just be useful.

  18. Welcome back, you poor thing! Glad you are feeling up to a bit of art again and I'm looking forward to your magazine art journalling a la Katie.

  19. Just glad to hear that you are on the mend and at least beginning to feel artful. I subscribe to Victoria and love the little decadence it allows me...to dream.

  20. Nice to hear you're continuing to improve. Do you know they say it takes close to a year for our bodies to fully recovery from surgery. Of course after awhile we aren't aware of the recovery process except maybe on those days we have lack of energy. I hope you have enough energy soon to have your artful weekend.

  21. Get better soon!
    Your art is so inspiring!!!!

  22. Oh dear, oh dear!! I am wayyy behind on blog reading and w/o you posting it wasn't showing up in my blog reader.

    I'm so sorry to learn a little accident turned into surgery for you.

    Sending cyber hugs for a speedy recovery!!

  26. oh, good grief, charlie brown! I didn't know you had a crocked nose in the first place. The lengths people will go to to have plastic surgery. LOL. I know -- it's not funny. that's just my way of saying I'm so-o-o-oo-o sorry for you. what are we going to do about you and your yard accidents? Glad you're on the mend now. Take care. Love you.

  30. I was so relieved to read your comment on my blog! Of course, I knew what happened from your last post, but I am so glad to know you're getting better. I've missed your art, but, even more, I've missed hearing your "voice." I didn't realize how attached I'd become to your wry sense of humor and insight. You MUST be more careful, dear one; I remember the lawnmower incident last year. Give yourself a big hug from me and take care!

    Love,
    Alberta
