the old black mill on the hill
love is a pathway

 Notes
Sometimes I write  a fragment on a daily basis just to keep me going.  The winter down here is never my favourite time of year and it gets more difficult to deal with as one gets older. Writing, painting, blogging and soon film making again, is for me a godsend.
The first fragment refers to the amazing post-operative care I had when in hospital many moons ago.  I had gone on my first holiday with my now long term partner to Venice, the children happily in the company of  their grandparents.
It was on our first day sightseeing  when my back collapsed! So there I lay on a wall  in St Marks Square groaning.
Later it transpired that three or was it four discs in my back had collapsed, (partly I suspect due to years of manipulating marionettes and putting up theatres).  I was flown back to hospital that night!
It was many months before I could get back to work and then with a heavy corset, adaptations to my car etc. Years of  mind over matter helped but the memory of waking up in that hammock never left me.
