I put a print through my etching press this evening and that is the proof to me that I am OK and back in action -- this time last week it was a very different picture. I was just utterly miserable with feverishness and a dull continuous ache in my lower abdomen.
It was hard to do anything at all. I was weakened by the blasted bug and it was dominating me. It really was not a case of snapping out of it or mind over matter.
I had had something like this whilst on my Masters course in Barcelona. That was called gasto enteristus which I guess just means stomach flu. Although back then I don't think I had the feverishness although I had diahorea and the stomach pain. I had to eat bananas hard boiled eggs and rice for the whole 2 weeks. Can you imagine the dullness of that. At least this time I was able to eat normally although I was definitely somewhat off my food these past 2 weeks. A lot more picky and not feeling I could face this or that kinds of foods.
I should add that the image included in this post is from a google search I did (on Nostradamus ) to put together an announcement for artistsbooks ning dot com website.
Here is a link to where I found the image as it would take too long to explain its origin.
