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!

Pedaling downhill

I wish you could see the spectacular weather we're having this week, it's just like early spring. It happens every year. We look outside, figure spring has arrived since the wild mustard and wild calendula are in the fields, the sun is shining and the temperature is warming. And then Bang! back to winter. I don't when that will happen, just know that it will.

Two of the boys at Juvenile Hall are becoming avidly interested in Zentangle so I have to keep one step ahead of them and learn new tangles as quickly as I can. Fortunately, all it takes is one NetFlix movie with my husband while he watches, I listen and tangle.


  1. I am sure the beautiful weather will come back again. We had rain+snow yesterday evening and today it's gonna be sunshine all day...weird indeed.
    These zentangles fun can be pretty addictive!

  2. Zentangles are so soothing to do ... they really are Zen-like. This is a fine example you've done here. nancy

  3. Just an idea for the boys. Sometimes I trace a plate on paper to create a perfect circle and then fill it in - it may help beginners to have a beginning - they could even divide it into pie shapes although I usually do free-form.

  4. Thank you all.

    Zentangles are addictive?? YES!

    Zentangles are calming?? YES!

    And thank you for the suggestion PAK ART!
