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!

Bowling - Special Olympics style

Today was the long awaited bowling tournament for the Special Olympics groups in Northern California. Our youngest daughter participated and won the gold medal in her group. I tried to capture a few of the poses as the team played and then went on to set up my December calendar. I've gotten to the point where my little journal book goes everywhere with me so I can add a page or two while I'm waiting for something or observing a bit of life I don't want to forget.


  1. Nothing wrong with stick figures! Getting a few key reference points in the right place is more important than realism!

  2. Your little stick figures are wonderful. I love how you added some color to represent clothing. Great job on these!

  3. That's so cute! Congratulations to your daughter on her accomplishments.
