Thanks everyone for your warm wishes. I am home and mostly hogging the couch. I havn't seen the surgeon since my op but I think everything went well...I am very sore and have got some impressive bruises coming out but I did expect that. My new scar has impressed the kids and suprised me- 15cm long! I expected 5 or 6 cm!
I came home the same day (Tuesday) and have mostly watched TV and slept since then, this is the first day I have been able to even contemplate a post so I guess that's progress!
I can't create my regular art but thankfully GREENPEACE has launched beautifully timed mass protest and is calling for people to create an online origami whale to send to the Japanese Government. It dosn't take long so please take the time to send a whale to join the e-pod. My one is a rather bohemian looking whale complete with rainbow tattoo's and the "make love not war' slogan. Very cool!
Here's a few lines from the email I recieved...We are getting close with the whales campaign. We're steadily making ground in Japan where it really counts. The recent whale meat scandal has rocked the industry and brought them a lot of unwanted attention. The IWC has the power to stop whaling once and for all and is meeting between June 23rd and 27th. Japan will be at the IWC pushing to resume commercial whaling.
However the tide is turning in Japan. Questions are being asked about just how much of the taxpayers' yen is being spent on fake science to justify hunting for whale meat that nobody wants.
You can join the swell of international pressure by sending a virtual origami whale to the Japanese Prime Minister to ask him to stop whaling.
Thanks again everyone, will visit as soon as I can:)
