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!

Proud as proud can be

They don't let me out very often, but sometimes I escape.  When I heard that Nigel Armstrong would be performing right here in his home town, I knew I had to hear him.  If you haven't heard of Nigel yet, that's okay.  He's only twenty years old but has already begun his career as a violinist.

Last summer he won 4th place in the International Tchaikovsky Violin Competition and was the highest ranking American.  He has played with several major orchestras in this country and elsewhere and usually, if we're very lucky, he'll comes home to Sonoma and plays for us.  Today I was in the sold-out crowd.  He is awesome!
