I’m catching up with the written blog (on paper!)
February was a brilliant month and a rubbish month.
I was ill for a week>>>
I went to Berlin with a group of sixth formers and some fab teachers – had my first experience since I left university of a live band in a club in Berlin – the group called We Invented Paris were amazing. There I was a 59 year old groupie wanting the lead singer to sign my newly bought CD!!!!! Embarrassing but great. My favourite two songs were Silence – sung whilst the band stood on the bar and Requiem – with everyone sitting down, played on a weird looking Indian harmonium – a haunting song about wanting to kiss alive someone who has died. Saw some amazing art – so inspiring – must return to this city again. Last day was spent in a Turkish market an an amazing canal side cafe – surreal place – The Freeswimmer – like a builders merchant by an industrial canal with whacky owners – loved it.
Visited my mum for a week – 86 and a feisty phenomenal frustrating lady.
Granddaughter amazed me. Love playing exploring games with her and watching her – EVERYTHING is interesting – the feel the look, sorting things, moving things, dancing to guitar music, things that slide, things that have switches and tops…..
Working on my bucket list – looking at Samaritans and VSO and local hospice. Not sure if I’m scared about all of them or maybe energised by them. Thinking about a suggestion made to me before Christmas – Art Therapy course…maybe.
Had a kindness shown to me – a parent of one of my former pupils paid my car parking as I didn’t have any change. Refused any contribution. Hugs.
Drawn out my first landscape – sooooo slow – get a move on!
Planned holiday in Estepona in March.
