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!

Watching the best

Chicory has been abundant this summer.  It grows wild, usually in fields and along roadways, and has become a particular favorite of mine.  I enjoy uncultivated wildflowers that just seem to happen, nature's gift with no effort to us.

We're still parked in front of the Olympics, not watching every game obsessively, but seeing a fair number of competitions.  I can't think of anything I've ever done with that level of dedication.  What does that say about me?
