Good News!

Hi, Friends, thank you for kind concerns and a great patience. Your cheers have helped my hand's recovery. Although a plaster and tapes have not been comfy, now, a doctor gives me a permission to get back to work. Yey!! I'll draw in my own pace. Slowly and steady. Typing still leaves pain. Not good. I avoid computer use as much as possible. 

Now, lots of things have happened and ongoing. All good news.


1) The ongoing project for immigrant women in Australia
Two images to go. The team is very supportive. They allow me to take a rest well and put my health first.
In November, hopefully, printed books will be distributed to public libraries and Non English Speaking women will access the information, where to get help in Australia.   

2) Arts Access Australia Conference & Art Exhibition 30, 31 October 2012 
Desire and Destination : Arts Activated Conference 
The Concourse - 409 Victoria Ave, Chatswood NSW 2067, Australia. 9:00 am -  6:00 pm

Click the link, a map comes up. I'll enjoy them all. Friends, if you like, come over!



Furthermore,
I'll join the discussion on the ABC of Publicity on 1st November,
Free masterclass for arts organisations and artists with disability to get tips and tricks for your own publicity and press campaigns from experienced media professionals and publicists from the ABC.


4) Right Now (not-for-profit media organisation focuses on human rights issues in Australia
October, "Right Now" focuses on "disability."
Through AAA, a few days ago, Right Now contacted me and will use my work for their newsletter. Great honour and wonderful publicity. I'd say thank you to Right Now staff. 
....and, finally, a bit... private... ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ·.•*•♫°•♫·.•ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ
                                       today is my birthday!

I thank YOU, and also thank for my difficulties. Without them, today's Sadami, particularly, an artist Sadami does not exist. 
In addition, typing is heavy for my right hand. 
Another project is coming to me. Very busy. I may not regularly update this blog. But I always read your blogs, please pardon my laziness not to leave comments.
Friends, Happy Painting!!

    1. Dear Midori,
      ありがとう。手は未だ炎症が有りますがゆっくりやります。私達が作って居るのは公立図書館への無料配布のNon English speaking women's 苦労話、でも成功談です。そこのappendixにinformation scourcesを作り、今、苦しんでいるNES womenを助ける目標があります。
      良かったですね, あなたのblogは大人気になると信じて疑いません。
      Best wishes, Sadami

  5. Happy,happy Birthday, Sadami!! So good to hear your good news and see your amazing work!

    A man I work with is trying out a device that let's him speak to the computer and it does the typing. There seems to be a lot of voice recognition training that needs to happen, but he too, has a hard time typing due to Parkinson's Disease.

    Your will is strong - keep on trucking, Sadami!

    1. Oh, what nice Pam!!
      Thank you! Yes, it's too hard, I might as well try a device. So far, it's ok. Very sorry for the gentleman, but also, I heartily hope he will cope with the conditions and live his life fully and merrily!!
      I'll keep on trucking!
      Kind regards, Sadami

  8. I am very happy that so many things can be good!
    Resting is important, but the work is also important:
    finding the right balance will be the best for you,dear Sadami!
    I admire your work, with beautiful fluidity and I hope everything best,every day!
    Warm regards,Rita.

    1. Oh, nice Rita,
      Thank you so much! Yes, what a wise say--anyone needs the balance between work and rest, although we often tend to forget it.
      Interestingly, if I'm not happy, my brush will not dance on paper and makes only dull and still work. So, I must be honest with myself, when I do my work.
      I, too, admire your work. Your style and beauty is different from mine. But each flower has unique beauty. Let us bloom out individually and fully!
      Warm regards, Sadami

      Thank you very much. I know you're one of the bravest fighters on the earth. Although the inflammation still remains, I'll balance bewteen work and health. Drawing gives me the meaning of life. I thanked for Lord in the morning that I was put on the earth as an artist. You, too, have a wonderful year!!

  11. dear Sadami,,
    not talked for a while, but know you're always there in my thoughts!
    I'm a little discouraged, tired, with little time to draw ...
    I know it is fleeting, all part of life and our self-knowledge, and find myself thinking of you and your willpower ... in your energy to participate in being dedicated to your goals even in the face pain and recovery, you are an example of life! I wish all the best to you!
    Increasingly, designing better and better, your work is fantastic!
    A strong embrace, full of nostalgia!

    1. Dear Denise,
      Thank you! You're always caring and kind. Yes, you, too, are always in my thoughs! How honest and candid you are! Denise, I love who you are and admire your being dead honest. It's your strength.
      Also, we know it's not easy to face difficulties, but I dare to challenge it. It's a paradox. If we can enjoy difficulties, they are no more tough on us.
      I cannot stand alone, but with other people's cheers, I can get through the tough time.
      I send you my big hugs and smile, Sadami
