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!

Hot days of summer???

Yesterday and today have been our first tastes of summer. I was lucky, I had absolutely nothing on my calendar for today so took it as a real day off. For a couple hours I sat outside on the deck and used my watercolor pencils to sketch my immediate surroundings. What most pleased me about this was that, one year ago, I tried to do something similar and was unable to get past one unconvincing barrel. I've improved!! And next year, when I try again, I'll be able to do even better yet, I just know it...
