I appreciate the responses from my last, and first, entry!

I am embarrassed to confess that I have not done any drawing for at least two months. This is like telling my parents, when I was a child, that I broke something precious. Oh no,what will happen? They'll be mad!

Not that I think anyone will be mad. I fear judgment - being seen as a failed drawer. I've lost my sobriety. I stepped of the path!!
But of course I am the one judging myself.

Avoiding doing something creative and personally satisfying is common for me. An ongoing drama. A true concern. It's a pattern to keep me where I am, even if it's not where I want to be.

So, my shameful little secret is out.

I am a creative arts facilitator and want to be a TD facilitator but I won't do that until I do more drawing for myself.

So, please send me some good thoughts to help me do my drawing!

All the best to all, Mary

Mary, Oh blessings on your healing. My daughter fracture a vertebrae when hit by a car while bike riding in the city. Thank goodnes for the healing capacity of bone!!!! I will email you a copy of an article that will be in the next enewsletter, on using TD in pain management. Timely, and maybe inspiring for you. We should start a small group on that. Keep healing on all levels.
I am doing a weekend at Omega this year. Any chance you could make it? Katrina will be there to help again. it would be great to see you. Blessings, Deborah

Deborah - Thanks so much for the reassuring reply!
I should let you know that on April 10 I fell while horseback riding and broke my pelvis and sacrum. It's not as horrible as it sounds. I didn't need surgery, which would have been a horrible complication and extended my recovery a great deal. Never the less, it has been extremely painful, so I am loaded up with painkillers and can be quite loopy. I was in the hospital for a couple of days and then was sent to a rehab facility for 5 days. I would have spent more time there but my sister flew up from Florida for 2 weeks to stay with me - the sister I went to Ireland with.
A PT comes twice a week and friends trained in various healing modalities have come over to do their thing. I use a walker and am able now to get about the house, although I tire easily. There is a bench in my shower with a hand held shower head and with the walker I can get in and out okay but someone needs to be nearby just "in case". And I need help with many every day tasks.
Before "The Fall" I attended a workshop with Helen Warren which of course was great. Several years ago I went to Maine a couple of times to work with her so it was great to see her again.
I will be drawing during my recovery! All the best to you, love Mary
