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!

Grow a little every day

I saw a poster recently which depicted a little tree growing in a flower pot. The caption, "Grow a Little Every Day" struck me as a nice motto for all of us. This afternoon, in the art therapy class I take with my daughter, we were asked to use black paper and construct mandalas. The drive through Wine Country to the class had been so stunningly beautiful that I still had a mind full of lingering images of fall leaves. So I began my mandala with a sort of leaf shape and then added this and added that. And then I remembered the poster and gave my mandala a title with that same sentiment.
