OK - 2 months later - And now - I am REALLY back.

A quick couple of updates first -

Walker continues with the chemo every month or so.  He is in Denver now with his second session. It is tough on the little guy and it breaks my heart that he has to go through this but he is a tough little guy.  Here is a picture his mom took while in the hospital on Thursday morning getting ready for the day long chemo process.

It hit me about 2 weeks before Christmas that I was needing to prioritize my deep desires to work on my art in my studio instead of lamenting about not having time for art.  Easy to do.  Just get up early and try for a couple hours each morning before the start of the day.  Just like the days when I was a single mom raising my sons and working.  If I wanted time for myself, and I did, I got up at 5 and had a couple hours to myself before the start the busy morning.  Just like that.  

It is working.  I will post some pictures now as I work on various things.  This Thursday, I finished my quilted piece, "Fire Walk".  It is about my feelings - how I feel when I think of the chemo in Walker's little body.  I have shared it with some friends - some saw see trees, some saw women dancing - I saw nothing just felt turmoil and pain as I quilted.  It was great therapy.

Here are some pictures. . .
