The week that was…
My daughter played Titania in a Midsummer Nights Dream. She loved the experience and wants to do more acting! I was very proud of her.
I took my daughter to see Inside Out, a spectacular film, which addresses depression. It illustrates how a young person can break down and also be rebuilt. Afterward, we had a few chores to see to. As I walked through the shopping centre, I started to stumble. I had an horrific pain through my left foot, shooting up my leg and into my spine. This was annoying, as I usually have that sort of pain on my right side. There I was, holding onto a trolley, my daughter gently guiding both it and I. I met a friend, who saw that I was in agony. She had just been to the post office to pick up a box filled with wine from the Margaret River region. She handed me a bottle of red, of which I am immensely grateful. I managed to get home, poured myself a glass and lay down. New symptoms added to the mix shake things up. At least its a change to the pathways of pain!
We went on a cruise around Sydney Harbor Friday night. My daughter loves Abba, and was delighted with the tribute band.
Here is an excellent article on the machinations of PTSD. I found myself nodding in agreement throughout.
Saturday night, we went to Marrickville Town hall, to a Masquerade Balkan Beats Ball. The divine Rroma Gypsy fusion band, Lolo Lovina got us all up dancing.
My daughter went for it on the dance floor, enthralled with the frantic beat and unencumbered joy. When life is rough and you are tired and in pain, my suggestion is get yourself along to a festival. Go for a walk. Shake up your world.
We saw a lot of rainbows on the internet, and it filled me with joy! Things can change and advance, yay!

Hello, Raphaela! FIRST of all, Hope Your pain is gone, and that You are Better.
You have a Lovely Daughter. And, reading about her, feel Proud of her! Her readiness to go onto the dance floor and dance impressed me. As also her gentleness and concern in holding on to You when You had the pain.
I hope and pray She goes Far in her Like for Acting. All the Best to her. And to You!
Love and Regards. 🙂
Thankyou so much, my friend!
🙂 …And what happened to the pain in Your leg? Hope You are Ok. Love to You and Your Sweet Daughter. (You have not given Us her name! Please do that!) 🙂
Your daughter looked lovely as Titania, I am sorry that you had such an awful painful episode whilst you were out, I hope that it has eased and you are feeling better. xx

She looked like a lovely Titania! Lots of Hugs sent your way! I hope the pain stays away as long as possible! (I have a weakness for ABBA myself….)

What a beautiful Titania your daughter makes! You must be so proud. And some Margret River red? Yum – the best thing for relaxing 😀
The red was certainly very welcome! We watched A Midsummer Nights Dream on DVD and she was entranced by it.
