Things are kind of sucky

Yes things are a bit sucky for me at the moment .

It has just been one of those weeks.

One of my best friends lost her three week old son. oh so very heart breaking and tragic.
Tomorrow will be the three year anniversary of my nephew who passed away when he was four weeks old.
How can this happen????? Let alone twice???? Does it ever get easier???

My Dad going into hospital tomorrow to get a tumour removed.

Sucky - I tell you.

But this makes me laugh. Really laugh . Pee your pants kind of stuff. Flight of the conchords.

I'm glad you can find something to have a laugh at even when you're down. You need that.

Hi

This isn't really to do with your thread, and I hope I'm not intruding, but I really wanted to invite you to be a part of a craft exhibition I'm organising for Melbourne Fringe at Fed Square called Totem.

Totem is a group exhibition exploring self identity through the resurging craft movement. Artists are invited to create a self portrait doll, not of how they look on the outside, but showing how they feel about themselves or how they secretly see themselves on the inside. These dolls will then be hung in the Fracture Galleries at Federation Square in Melbourne from 22nd of September to the 13th November as part of the Melbourne International Fringe Festival.

These dolls can be created from scratch (sewn, knitted, crocheted, carved, glued etc), conversions from pre-existing dolls, sculptural assemblages from any materials, found objects or anything else you can imagine. They can be a human, an animal, a mythical creature or anything else. They can be as fantastical or ordinary as each artist feels themselves to be. Artists can submit as many dolls as they wish. The venue can cater for dolls from 30cm to several metres.

The Totem exhibition recognises we live in a growing culture of alienation which results in an increasing suspicion of strangers and shame of the self. The central premise of Totem is that no matter how different from each other we might seem on the outside, we all feel the same on the inside and it expresses this through individually created dolls which expose each artists deepest sense of identity, demonstrating that the realm of human experience is the same no matter who we are.

To find out more, please visit www.omnificassembly.com.

To be a part of this exhibition please contact curator Sayraphim Lothian on them@omnificassembly.com

Please feel free to forward this to anyone you know that might be interested.

very sucky. I hate SIDS. I've had a niece and a nephew die from it at (6months and 14months) it's not something that's easy to come to terms with. I hope your best friend is doing ok. and I hope all goes well with your dad

A sucky week indeed.

Hope your dad is ok..

Oh, man...that is all sucky indeed. Glad you are able to take some joy from funny at the same time though. Hope all is well with your Dad.

'Simply trust:
Do not the petals flutter down,
Just like that?'

(Haiku from the Japanese, by Issa translated by Blyth). It is no consolation, is it, that nature is cruel as well as bountiful.

I can not even fathom such a loss. You really are having a tough time of things of late, but I really admire how you are always such an upbeat person. I hope your Dad will be Ok and I am looking forward to catching up with you at netball.
I LOVE FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDS!! CLEVER STUFF AND SOOOOO FUNNY! Nice to think they can bring you laughter at the moment.

that is heartbreaking, no other word for it. I get weepy when I don't know the person, let alone it being a friend or relative. Best wishes for your dad. Buy him the Conchords DVD so he can have some laughter therapy. And on that subject...I am kind of in love with both of those guys, but I can never figure out which one I like more. I'm a sucker for a funny dork.
