Elle Loge La Folie, oil on canvas, 1970.Roberto Matta
The weather is improving, the clouds are slowly moving away and the sun is starting to shine now.
Friday and saturday were cold, grey, rainy, on both days I wore my big fleece top to keep me warm.
I think unless I am very mistaken, that maybe the last time until autumn, hope summer will start to happen.
Be nice if it were to happen slowly, rather than go from 16 to 30 degrees which is like going from cool spring to blazing hot summer.
This morning I was woken abruptly from deep sleep by my painful right arm and lots of leg spasms.
Trying to drift back off to sleep proved difficult to do; it only worked briefly, kept waking up with my right arm folded tightly over my chest.
Every tiny involuntary movement woke me; my arms were dreadful this morning, better now I have done my arm exercises.
Also better now that I am reading newspapers, e-mails and typing my post, during the day my pain is manageable because I have other things to focus on.
It’s nighttimes that can be difficult, waking in pain and trying to sleep without getting caught up in dark thoughts is not always possible.
