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!

Don't look at me like that

I should have become a meteorologist when I grew up. I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time gazing at the weather, wondering when a shift will come, what will happen next. I especially dislike weather that just sits there, day after day, always bright and sunny, always the same. Today it was bright and sunny but now it's dark and cloudy with the promise of some slight drizzle, colder temperatures tomorrow and the generally unsettled weather pattern that happens in northern California at this time of year.

I've tried several times to draw this deer that my husband photographed in Yosemite. The deer is standing still but I'm not quite getting it. I have no excuse, it's not even moving!
