After Abdoulie left in December 2002, the first thing Carina did was redecorate. "It was incredibly therapeutic," she says. "I painted everything in tranquil shades of lilac and blue which made me feel very peaceful. It was a sign of a new start."
She also listened to the U2 album All That You Can't Leave Behind, which helped her deal with her situation: "I played the album so much Iisha would say 'Not again, Mum!' when I put it on. I really identified with a lot of the songs."
I just thought that was cool... another example of U2's music touching people in amazing ways. :o)
