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!

Saturday's update

My 10-year old grandson is totally "airplane struck" and e-mailed me this drawing. His present goal is to become a pilot. He visits airports and flying events regularly and now he is beginning to draw them too.

Today was another all day session of docent training focusing on the architecture of the historic buildings -- the mission of San Francisco Solano (the 21st and last built of the California chain of missions), the barracks, Petaluma Adobe (where I hope to lead tours) and General Vallejo's home. It was a little hard being indoors on such a glorious day but the material was presented in an interesting way and certainly whetted my appetite to learn more.


  1. Very lovely drawing! I'd always wanted to be a pilot too, until I found out that my eyesight was deteriorating when I was 17... ah well :)
