Sooo much has happened since I was here last! I’m in Southport right now, at the interweb cafe. I had to see my sexual violence counsellor again today, first time since I got back from Maryborough, and it wasn’t so bad.
On Saturday I went out to breakfast with a friend of mine (yes, the Kitty has friends now! You may all be excited for her) and the place we went for breakfast was in – dramatic pause – Surfer’s Paradise! I was ok. I sat and ate my breakfast and talked to my friend in the shadow of that building, the place where it happened. I was ok. A little sick at first, but as I sat and talked and relaxed and I realised I was safe, I was ok.
Sunday was very eventful, especially for a lass who does all her travelling on the buses. It was pelting rain. Footpaths and roads were flooded, public parks were turned to lakes, but I had a beautiful spiritual day planned and I wasn’t gonna give it up for the weather! I went to yoga in the morning, then more time on the bus to Spiritualist Church in another suburb, then back to the first suburb for meditation, chanting and dance. I would embellish, but I’m at an internet cafe, so sorry…
Yesterday, I bought a guitar. I can’t play it, but I’m learning. Yesterday I learned “E minor” and the appropriate fingers (and my neighbours) hate me, but they’ll get over it.
That brings me to today. I think I’m almost ready to call myself a “survivor” of sexual assault. Almost. I’ll keep you posted.
Signed with love,
The Pretty Kitty.
