I got this drawing tablet a while ago and have only just begun to use it ... last night after making chutney from all the produce we have here ... LABELS! .... its quite hard getting used to looking at the screen while drawing on the tablet, and there are loads of things I need to learn ... but I am pleased and excited with the experiment! Who knows what else will happen.... ???

Two weeks ago I was attacked - road rage......... the attack stopped just short of being actually physical .... but psychically it has really affected me - the suspects are being questioned soon - and I hope they will opt for restorative justice rather than court ....... It has taken me this long to stop feeling weepy and pathetic and find my justifiable anger ....... and here is what has helped me access how I feel about being threatened and abused and to say in the words of LOUISE MENSCH in today's paper, "Get Stuffed, losers, I dont bully that easily" ....
No more about it for now... except to say that Victim Support may use one of the following as a poster.... I dont know if they ( the paintings!) are any good - there are certainly things about them that I like - and maybe that can lead me on somewhere new. ONce again I am grateful that somehow I have a channel, a way of exploring the interior that feels like a gift.
