I have passed my half way point whilst neglecting my blog but lately I have been reflecting on Stamina. What makes you go the distance? Palm to Palm has grown into a performance which has grown into a talk and is now at times the way people introduce me to others – “This is my friend Lou, she’s spending the year holding people’s hand for 30 minutes”. So this means that pride is an element that keeps me going and within that there is ego. I like that people keep asking about it even when I struggle to talk about it. Fun – that it is fun (most of the time) keeps me going and the small amount of fear in not finding someone, in being rejected, in being tempted to not try a bit harder, in indulging in just staying in also somehow helps to feed the stamina.
Here comes the photos, it’s been a while so there’s a few!
