A Photo Post

A photo taken with my iPhone of the nighttime. Not perfect, but relaxing somehow.

Our older tea strainers. Cute, but not so usable.

A yummy seafood risotto, I had with my love. During Christmas shopping; a welcome treat!

  1. Seeing people with an untreated mental illness could be scary I think, but who decided what ‘normal’ is??
    That crab is so life like and then I read and saw it was risotto!!!
    I also need to read what I have typed more carefully, my last comment was mumbo-jumbo!!

    1. Thanks, 2paw! Normal, seems to have many many varieties! :)

      I was amazed when they brought the risotto to the table, I was expecting ‘normal’ risotto in a bowl. The presentation was amazing!

  2. oh my goodness, Alysha, I did not get your last post and am sitting here reading this post wondering what on earth you were talking about. *scroll* and *scroll* again to read your last post. oh I would like to apologise for not getting this and responding. I feel a right royal cow now. Oh my dear blog friend how awful of me. Quite honestly, I think how dare others feel they have the right to judge anyone. Who says what is ‘normal’ behaviour, who is the king of the castle that can point the finger at another human, who knows where that person has been, what they have endured, not anyone says me, not anyone at all. My friendship extends to you my dear blog friend, and again i apologise for not showing my support to you in any way that I can.
    I do love your night sky photo. It looks rather quite like something from a movie. Actually it would make an awesome postcard.
    Take care of you, xx

    1. *hugs* Please don’t feel like a ‘royal cow’, you’re not at all! With this weather and all the happenings around the country lately, not to mention everyday family life; its easy to miss things! I just got a little nervous that I scared everyone away! Glad I didn’t! It’s a funny old thing, this wanting to help fight stigma, but then getting scared to write about it under your own name. Still thinking whether to continue or not (writing about my experience, not blogging altogether)! :)

  3. You should never feel like you have to apologize for being honest and open. I think it’s incredibly courageous of you to speak of your battles with mental illness. If people are afraid, then that means that they need to educate themselves better. People used to be afraid of cancer patients and disabled people. And probably people still are. There is really no such thing as “normal” if you ask me. Everyone has something. If we were all the same, the world would be a boring place to live in. Don’t be sorry for who you are. Be proud of your courage. *hugs*

    1. Thank you Karin *hugs* The need for people to educate themselves, or be educated, is what leads me to write about it. But I still get wobbly feet now and then about doing so!

  4. ack! I thought if I replied to a comment from within WordPress, it would add it after the comment I was replying to! I hope it is clear who I was replying to with each??
