This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."

Here's hoping they do that quickly then. Fab shot, too. I hope you're feeling okay and I especially hope you're not bored to pieces. The boredom was the worst part for me when I was in hospital.

The queasiness is horrible and a side effect of one of the morphines. I'm going to try to not take it this afternoon. Of course it'll depend on how much pain comes, but right now I think I'd rather feel well and hurt

most of the time it barely feels at all. I wasn't actually ill when I came in so apart from the weakness engendered by a major op and the drugs I'm mostly me. The vacuum action of the drains feel like a very slight bubbling. My friend who comes most days is constantly surprised at how well I look. So's my brother who took a photo of me today for my records

At the moment one surgeon is looking at my going home next wednesday :( The other is thinking maybe Sunday or Monday

Good to see you posting. I'm wishing for clear tubes as soon as possible so you can get home.

Home soon anyway. And looking at the bright side...fabulous hospital food....(well maybe not)... :-)

Zofran is great for making the queasy go away. I would hate for you to have to be in pain - but I think sometimes queasy is worse!

So glad to see you posting! I'm thinking clear tiny fluid thoughts at your drains.

Hope Wednesday hurries along. Keep posting!

ah, drains... that brings back memories! I know it's annoying but it's not possible to rush these things. (Quote from Fatboy Slim: they say time is a great healer... but I believe in chemicals baby!) I've always had an uneasy relationship with pain relief, but my attitude now is, if it's necessary and does the job, then shoot the vaccine to me Maxine!

I've only had morphine once and I couldn't stop vomiting.
Hope the Sunday/Monday doctor gets his/her way. :)

That's funny, i've only had morphine once and it was to stop me vomitting. Worked a dream.

I really dislike hospital stays, and I'm always very anxious to be released.

I hope you are healed enough that they feel safe sending you home ASAP.

Hope those pipes go see-through soon and they let you back into the real world.

beth says:

When I stayed in hospital my condition of release was that I had to pass two bladderfuls of water. You've never seen me drink so quick. The other two people had the same condition to get out as me so things got quite competitive. They were both quite geriatric though so I beat them hands down. I got some pretty evil eyes as I was packing up to go.
