Or should I say, looking forward to 2015?

Looking forward is more my tune but the changeover of another year, especially with chronic pain, calls me to reflect and to ponder my future.

It’s been three gorgeous months in nurturing Tasmania where I’ve eased my work load, upped my fine art a little, and squished obligations to almost zilch (bliss!). The year will end and sadly I haven’t been able to incorporate driving into my abilities, nor a consistent and regular exercise routine, and Theo is still carrying much of our daily living load… but…

…as I keep stating, finding life balance with chronic pain is really very difficult and I believe ‘we’ are doing very well, yes it takes the two of us, Theo and I.

I’ve stopped my medication and thankfully that rid the night-time hallucinations. Although dainty, my fort has been held without meds, monthly massages and Traditional Chinese Therapy – for this I give huge thanks to the implant in my body.

Indeed the Sun is beginning to shine down on me, and yes, I will certainly be marking the months of this Tasmanian trial period in my spirit’s fashion with a small solo exhibition. I’m working on self-portraits that will exhibit at Penny Contemporary in Hobart. Here’s your diary date: Opens March 6 until March 25. If you want to follow this artistic endeavour, subscribe here.

There’s so much more I could write, but I’m going to keep this light and hopeful and keep my bigger news to kick off the new year…

Signing off now… sending love, health, happiness and the warmest of hopes for pain relief to those of you who need it.
