Dear Belinda,
sorry for replying so late. Thank you very much for the beautiful site, I just like to watch the images and imagine that I'm visiting all those places, maybe early in the morning when there are not so many people around!
I've been away lately, in a beautiful little mountain village, where kids were doing a kind of dance summer courses. We, the parents, ate a lot of good things and took long walks in the woods. In the hotel where I stayed there were some decorative plates hanging on the walls, with... mythological subjects! I think they were just inspired from mythology, because they were not well-known scenes. I had a hard time trying to figure out who the characters were, but I suppose they were just generic heroes. But why, oh, why, didn't I take photos? (Because my daughter had the camera and I never saw her around).
Now I'm back to my translations, this time with machines called Morpheus and Mars... and I have to fight against sleep.
How are things going down under?
A big hug,
Anca

Dear anca.presently at home nursing an old swimming injury.years ago when i was racing in a backstroke race they that is the commitee that had organised the event had forgotten to put the 5meter flags up so i didnt have time to warm up and count the required strokes before turning and with no flags to tell that i was 5meters away from the wall i careeared smack into it my head and arm folding at a weird angle.for 18 months afterwards i struggled afterwards literally on the verge of fainting from the pain until i could find someone who could at the very least touch me without me blacking out.this came in the image of a very wiry gentleman (and he was in both manner and treatment) who at the end of the consultation got me on his back weights on my feet and this movement stretched my spine..to say the least the weight of the world fell off my shoulders..
as i write im clicking and clacking away so even the memory is helping..but there is meaning to this tale apart from feeling very atlas like i did have a moment when i wondered what should i really be doing in my life..and there was the answer
on collecting a layby i had at a local store i had a moment where you know you are "off with the fairies",and what was i blindly gazing at?
A tiny picture of cupid and psyche.

Dear Belinda,
I'm so sorry to hear that your are not in maximum physical shape. I can't even imagine what it is like to be in pain for 18 months. I have my fair share of backaches, so I know what pain is... luckily after a while it goes away.
Do you still have to do therapy? Maybe return to the wiry gentleman? (I can't help but imagine him, and the image makes me laugh!)
Anyway, you were lucky you discovered what you had to do with your life. I'm still thinking about it, even if I'm approaching the moment when the next thing for me to do is... become a grandma. Hopefully not too soon, my daughter is still young :-)
Let's see if during the next days I'll also spot a Cupid and Psyche. When I read your words (you manage to render a vivid image with just a few words), I am inspired to be a little more attentive to the world around me, and sometimes I see things that I haven't noticed before :-)
Get well soon!
A big hug,
Anca
