Kids, Hips, Shows & Stuff

How did it suddenly become midway through March? Craziness. We had one small beach holiday in February and the rest of the time I've been a busy bee. I created twelve illustrations for a children's health calendar and the rest of the time had my theatre hat on, remounting a show (The Brave) that's now being performed in Hawaii! Without me, sadly...

And then there's the hip saga, which to cut a lifetime story short, involves finally finding out that many years of doing extreme things to my body in the name of dance has completely ruined one of my hips. This may mean a big operation, somewhere in the not too distant future. I felt terribly sad and dejected for a few days, but now I'm on a mission to find out as much as I can about hip surgery and any  possible alternatives. Everything has been turned upside down in a way I never expected - it's a strange and nervous feeling.

Dear Carla, I'm sorry to hear that you have a health problem! But I believe that together with your family you will take the best decision and everything will be OK soon, fingers crossed!
Your drawings are so sweet! I like the tiny rabbit, appearing here and there and the hidden story in each one of them. Kids will love to have you calendar at home, I'm sure!
What about your theatre work - how nice! It was so interesting to learn about your show - intriguing as a theme and promising to be an emotional one! I had a similar experience, but on the puppet stage, in February again. You can read about it here - http://rossichka.blogspot.com/2015/02/like-nice-dream.html
I wish you courage!

Thank you so much... yes, I'm hoping for the best outcome and in many ways it's a relief to find out what the real problem is instead of all the guessing I've been doing. Popping over to your blog now to have a look at your theatre work!
