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!

Church doodles

I'm trying to develop the habit of drawing/doodling everywhere I go, including in church this morning. I travel with an assistance puppy in training so I sketched Beulie in too, the one time she wasn't moving (asleep) so I had half a chance. I found that I was much more alert, more focused during the service since I was taking in everything on multiple levels. Another way of saying, I hope no one is offended. (Click for enlargement)


  1. Oh, I do agree with doodling adding to concentration! I do that too, but mine aren't half as nice or interesting as yours.
    Great blog and and great capture of the small, but important moments of life; it is an inspiration to me.

  2. I doodle too - where ever I am. It helps a lot concentrating.
    Keep on doodling.

  3. I dont think people should be offended, I doodle all the time too and if this is your way of communicating it is a better way than some. Love your blog.

  4. I wouldn't be offended. Sketching is so much better than painting your nails, which I have seen. lol!
