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!

Sunday morning

I'm trying really hard to do something creative each day, even if I don't know what I'm doing or like the results. Yesterday I made a postcard for my grandson. It was passable but not bloggable, nothing I'm particularly proud of. I photocopied a page from the dictionary, the page that had the word "tree" on it. Then I drew a tree right over it. I liked the concept a lot, I just didn't like the result. This afternoon, after the day warms up, I'd like to sit outside on the deck and look at a tree and draw it. I apparently don't have enough of a symbolic sense to really know what a tree looks like!
