Writing 24.12.2021 Living in Ladismith

After my last post about my incredible artist-friend Michaelango, I was hospitalized again for Electroshock therapy - a 2 week stay at the Akeso psychiatric treatment facility in Pretoria.

These are my birthday roses from March.   They are still in my room. I can’t seem to throw them away. I move them from corner to corner, on the window sill or even on the floor. I keep them on display, I keep them safe. I find them still so beautiful, helpless, delicately holding their pose, admiring their nature, to be roses, at every stage of their lives.
