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!

Happy Fourth of July

It's always been clear to me that July 4th is the celebration Sonoma does best.  The population is only 10,000 but the parade lasts a full two hours and the 30-minute fireworks display is always awesome.  Today the plaza was packed with activities, picnickers and food concessions and the mood was upbeat.  The temperature at parade time was a pleasant 72ºF, the economy is improving (building projects all over town) and morale is getting higher every day.
