Arty farty bits and bobs …

Out and about with my third eye... 👀

Out and about with my third eye… 👀

In recent months, I have neglected this blog – for many reasons really – life just seemed to become chaotic and as is usually the case … Murphy’s Law – ensures that everything that could possibly happen, does happen, all at once.

Reluctantly I find myself with time on my hands – hmm… literally.

I sustained a crush fracture of my right wrist just over a week ago.

I’ve had surgery to secure all the bone fragments and with the high-tech, metal plates, screws and bone grafts, Ash, the clever, competent surgeon has also managed to repair the torn ligaments.  It is these stringy, white ribbons of elastin and collagen fibres, that help to bind the joint together.

My wrist and hand are painful and swollen, but I know that with rest, time, ice (hmm…lots of drugs!)  keeping my arm elevated & supported, and putting my wrist joint through a range of movements, frequently –  flexibility and function will return. I just need to be patient.

So – hello again dearest abandoned blog! How you goin’ eh? Let’s rendezvous and try to get something creative happening’ here.

I hope  that I will be able to paint and draw again with my dominant right hand – but until I do – here are a few snapshots of some of my work – both paintings and photographic images.

Do drop by and say hi – and I’ll wave with my left hand. 👋

    • Hey Van – thank you!
      I have time now because I’m redundant in all sorts of other ways – so I’m forced to write …
      I hope that flexing some other muscles instead of the domestic kind – free’s me up from the tyranny of the blank page and just makes me write with verve, passion, humanity, humour, curiosity and so much more.
      I’m immersing myself in books, podcasts, doco’s and music.
      The girls are quite capable of managing and its a bit of a treat to take a breath!

    • Hi Paul,

      I hope you get this, it’s now 2 yrs later. I’m very sorry for the mixup… I did ask my daughter if you remember to transfer the money to you, but I was a digit missing.
      If you get this – please reply and send me your details and I will pay you ASAP.
