A First Peek - "The Many Faces of PMR/GCA" {aka R&R Downunder}

A First Peek - "The Many Faces of PMR/GCA" {aka R&R Downunder}

Good Morning! This morning was a creative morning... even though it's cool, dreary and grey! The monster ("she that shan't be named") and I, were inspired to create the first in series of PMR /GCA Face Masks!!

The series is titled "The Many Faces of PMR/GCA" and this first (dual) mask is titled "R&R Downunder." Can you guess who it's for????

It already resembles me this morning. Is it one of our Aussie friends?

Hahahahahaha. Yes, I thought it looked like I felt... Soggy, upside down, yucky discombobulated, and out of shape!

Oh, and yes, but shhhhhhh, it's a secret. It's for Rimmy and Ruth. ; )

The worst thing is that jeans these days come in that shape! If they fit my bum they are about 2in too big on the waist...

I woke with the song "I want to break free" inside my head - due to the shock of looking in mirror with glasses on - and finding Freddie Mercury moustache looking back..... As I am on holiday, my creative time today was spent duly pruning. I now resemble your head. Can't wait to see finished product.

To me it expresses how are previous identities are buried somwhere under the PMR/GCA, prednisone, symptoms......etc

But that’s just my thought! Everyone interprets art in their own way....

Ummm Melissa --uuummm for US !!!???? - it has sometimes been said we are 'joined at the hip' - someone once called us 'siamese twins' ( but never 'two-faced' ) and we often share our brains completing 'eachother''s sentences ... we ARE actually quite 'close' but physically VERY different - Ruth is a long lean athletic 'vegan' and 'moi' - well I have frequently been described as having a 'big head' (literally) !! and as for the rest of me well - I'm all in 'proportion' ...so with THAT 'brief' we wish you phenomenal creative strength and imagination - you'll need it - but we KNOW you have 'the goods' !!

How EXCITING !!!! - could this be the first artwork in a travelling 'global' exhibition with any funds raised supporting research for PMR/GCA ....

I have plans for this beauty, you will be together, but separate; created from one, but two. similar, but very different...

...all will be revealed! AT CHRISTMAS!

Hahahahahaha

Yep, life is definitely upside down. The all encompassing feeling of being a mess, hair, skin, brain. Nothing as it was..... Mirrors to be avoided and don’t look in shop windows, a stranger looks back.

It’s good to have a project to focus your mind. A realise of creative energy does you a world of good.

I've really enjoyed this thread..beautiful writing, humor and wit. Reading it picked me up. I can't concentrate very well lately and my English is declining fast, I can only communicate in Spanglish lately.. lol. So reading this and "getting it" made me feel normal for a while.

¡BUENO! Todos tenemos acceso a Google translate, así que si pierdes tu inglés todos juntos, ¡todavía te respaldamos! ¡Feliz esta breve edición de editor que te dio una recogida! xxxx

Wow! That's a perfect translation... at least grammatically. I used to translate for a living...I remember when the e-translators started, they were more a nuisance than anything else... it was harder to correct than to just translate yourself. But this is amazing.
