this and that
Whilst I prepare for the Fair tomorrow I also suffer from terrible back pain. How so, you might ask? Well, yesterday morning after my daily yoga session in which I had managed over a minute in Crow pose [a new record for me] I left the mat feeling pretty proud of self to get some breakfast and just like that: ouch, my lower back scrunched or whatever it was, and I had pulled a muscle.....it's been a long while since I over-stretched my back! I'd forgotten how much that hurts and it hurts like hell.....I tried to keep moving and hot water-bottles offered some relief, but I woke up after a weird night, hardly capable of getting out of bed, so this morning I rang my GP: help, I need pain killers! am on diclofenac now which doesn't seem to be working, hmmm and I have the Fair tomorrow.....
The aging body has a will of it's own. I know I have been very busy in the garden and studio and visiting friends et cetera, but still....it feels like a let-down. Anyway back to more interesting pursuits: a mycelium experiment, where I've squeezed the 'reishi-spawn' between 2 glass plates, hoping I would get a paper like surface for painting/printing.
It's smoother on this side than the other and the stamp prints, using shop bought alcohol based stampink, have come off rather well
wish me luck for tomorrow, fortunately younger son and husband are here to help me set up and dismantle...
one thing I've learned these past couple of days: when in need, just ask
