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!

Doodling my way through life

Sometimes it's just about impossible to get myself to draw or paint something. On those days doodling comes in handy. It's a way to play with line and color and lots of dots, I seem to really go for those dots!

I haven't heard a word from Beulie yet, but we only returned her to Canine Companions for Independence on May 13th so it's far too early to expect any news. But she gave our family so much life, she was such a vigorous, happy little puppy and her move into advanced training has left a deep void for the rest of us. So I doodle in my Moleskine with a great set of Stabilo markers.


  1. Wouldn't this make super giftwrap? And notecards?

  2. I can even see this done in embroidery! Fantastic!
