Staying alive

The Bee Gees cover concert was fun. I had a great view from the wheelchair – don’t know about the person behind me, but I was level with the stage, and I could see over the whole audience. People were up and dancing at their seats, in the aisles. I did lots of wheelchair dancing, which I’m sure was very good for my knee, although both my feet are more puffed up today, from being kept in more normal positions and used, last night and today.  

So that was much better than being in hospital. The crowd was even dancing in the interval to ‘Simply the best’. And Staying Alive was a very good song for me. We’ve had the Bee Gees playing in the car today.  

All of us went shopping for some Easter chocolates today, and I went to watch my son play basketball, and we got to the pool, even though it rained just when we were going to go.  

Very active, very lively.

What is it about Columbo?

Tonight I was feeling melancholy, due to another random, unexpected symptom that has popped up over the past few days on and off – a temporary loss of sensation around my nose of all things, that makes me worry about the facial nerve. But then I watched another episode of the old TV detective show, Columbo. For some reason, it cheers me up, gives me a different perspective. First of all, there is the sudden death (usually remarkably easily accomplished), which creates another life/death perspective in my mind, a more comfortable one. Then there is Columbo’s particular techniques of investigation, and the enjoyment of watching him put together the pieces. And then there is the character’s own attitude to what he is doing. In tonight’s episode, he shared a bottle of dessert wine with the murderer in the closing scenes. He has a type of loving-kindness, compassionate, non-judgementalism that is most unusual in a murder mystery situation. It is not that he admires the criminals, but that he doesn’t judge them. Things just are as they are.  I’m stocking up on Columbo at the K-Mart sale!

Day of Pi

My daughter tells me today is ‘the day of pi’, because in US dating system, it is 3.14. So they wrote ‘pi’ limericks in Maths, for fun. Here is her limerick. For fun.
“What a wonderful number is pi
it reaches up into the sky
but if it you bite
you’ll be up all the night
and you’ll count till the day that you die”

I think I like no. 2 🙂
