For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

Copious Copper

I am starting to see copper pop up in various different places and I must say that I like it. As a girl I experimented with copper jewelry but I found the copper to be less manageable than other metals. Now I've learned that you can use fine layers of copper to create objects such as these pendant lamps by David Derksen. These lamps were made by Derksen for the very popular Olsen restaurant in Buenos Aires.
