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!

Waiting for the storm to break

A major storm is heading our way, the leftovers from a typhoon in the Pacific Ocean. It will be the first real rain for the season, and since we've been in a drought, it is most welcome. Personally, I prefer weather that does something, that doesn't just sit around, day after day, in its sameness.

And while I've been waiting, and watching out the window as the clouds darken, I've been drawing zentangles to adhere onto luminary bags for next September's Relay for Life. (I work ahead, I promised an oncology nurse that I would draw 200.)

I also finished half of my homework for tomorrow. The assignment: Draw your hand and foot.

Well, I did the hand.

  1. To be able to draw that many patterns is mind boggling. Love the patterns and the hand. Good work.
