On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Healing mandalas

I'm learning how to draw mandalas. So far, all I know is that you start in the center and move outward. If you do something on the top, you do the same thing on the bottom. If you draw on the right, repeat it on the left. Beyond that, I know nothing! The hardest part is the initial measuring, I never get that right (so far). But they're fun and absorbing. I'm encouraged to know that Karl Jung drew one every single day for some years and found it helpful. I'm not there yet, I'm just at the having fun stage.
