Snail mail

A cheering treat at the end of a tiresome week.


Yes, it has been quite a while!

Version 2
Over the past few years my health declined to a point where I needed to let a lot of things go. Thankfully, I’m improving a bit now and trying to decide which threads to pick up again. Reviving this blog is a first step back into sharing my creative endeavours online.

I haven’t spent all of the time since my last post wandering hospital corridors, but I had an appointment this morning and thought that another shot of the same view as my last post would be a good restarting point. I prefer the composition of the October 2013 image, but this one is brighter and sharper so perhaps that’s a good omen.

I have taken quite a lot of photos during my time out from blogging, so I’ll be posting from my recent archives as well as uploading images as I take them.

Today is ME Awareness Day – this image from a long-ago holiday in the Isles of Scilly is in memory of the life I had Before ME. When I could travel, spend long days walking in beautiful places, eat what I liked, get a little drunk and get up the next day and do it all again. When I could work all day, curse at the commute, spend the evening with friends at the cinema, theatre or a concert, eat what I liked… etc. When housework, shopping, gardening and personal paperwork got fitted in between everything else without a thought. Normal life – a treasure beyond measure.
