  • These are many of the women of The Association that brings us the yearly San Cristobal - Book - Fair. They are the ones who brought Jane Goodall to town a few weeks ago Meeting Jane

    Here they have come to my show opening. I had not had a show of my artwork for at least a couple of years. These gorgeous women came and many more people: patients, ex - patients, friends, some very old friends, aquaintances, the lady, Lucy, who puts my images on cookies and she gave all the smaller ones just away!

    Three TV - teams came to interview me and during the following days a very nice young man from the local radio also interviewed me.

    I felt loved.

    I liked my paintings.

    I am nearly blind, but I still can paint!

    There and then, drunk on friendship, attention and a good red wine I decided this: I will keep painting until truly my eyes drop dead out of their sockets!!!
