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!

Cool and calm

It was just about close to cold yesterday - it never reached 80º F.  There was a heavy cloud cover until afternoon and a gentle breeze all day. With all the heat nationwide I feel very, very fortunate.

It was a lazy Saturday, a treat.  I had no commitments and nothing in my planner, so unusual for a weekend.  I relish days like that, they come along by surprise.


  1. A very nice tribute to the tripped over plant.

  2. Lovely sketch, very delicate and natural!

  3. this botanical drawing is so delicate - I really like it.
