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!

From the back of the church

It's been raining all day, a fairly steady cold rain with deep dark clouds. It feels like winter, like we're so far into winter spring will never come. Which is okay with me since I love this weather with all it's drama, rain that just doesn't end.

Some people draw on subways, some in airports. I draw in church. There were lots more people than I show here, but these were the ones I could manage and still participate in the service. I use a pencil and then retrace the best lines with a black Micron pen. Usually I draw Beulie in church but she's in the kennel and we're missing her and her unstoppable puppy energy.
