Dali exhibition

Dear friends,
Great achievement going into the city last week to go to the National Gallery of Victoria for the Dali exhibition. I went in by train and had some lunch and went quickly around the exhibit taking in enough to make me happy but not making me too anxious with the crowds. I darted in and out of the queues going around all the paintings and drawings, etc. I then came home. I needed to sleep for an hour when I got home because it took a lot of my energy but I did it.
One fascinating thing I discovered is that it is good for me to journal while I am on the train. I journaled all the way on the train there and back and time went so fast and I wasn't anxious about the people on the trains. I will journal in future. Great discovery. Reading and knitting isn't as good.
I realise it won't be possible for me to do my 2 days in the city staying at the Windsor until I get more practice going to the city and dealing with the crowds. I am hoping to go into the city again to the Pompei exhibition at the museum. I will be in my quiet phase so it will be interesting to see if I decide to go. I am much better doing things when I am in my zippy, up phase.
Just keeping you up to date with what is going on.
I am certainly doing much better than 12 months ago and far better than when I started this blog.
lots of love from susan in australia
