Oil and Water photo

I love doing the oil and water photos that I started doing in 2011 as a way to challenge myself and a new project to work on during chemo treatments.

 This is one of the photos I did - you never get the same image twice!!!

My sister sent me this gorgeous bracelet to wear - she has one too......

My sister sent it before I was diagnosed with breast cancer so I am guessing I got it in 2010 - should have wrote the date down!!  I wore it during treatments at first but stopped because the chemo would make bracelets give me a rash - the radiation I couldn't wear jewelery - now I am back to wearing my bracelets and necklaces.  This is one of my favorites to wear.

It's time for the postcard swap again!!

I loved getting the postcards last year while on my journey with breast cancer - it made my days brighter to receive the postcards from other artists and see their work.

 So excited to be a part of the swap again.

One year ago today!!!

It was one year ago today that I got the call to confirm I had breast cancer. Hearing those words nearly knocked me off my feet but me being me just said " ok so what do I need to do now"!!! I started my journey and even though I am still on it I will not let it knock me down!!!!!! I made a post on FB this morning about the one year anniversary and a childhood friend started posting memories with me about our childhood - which I thought meant more to me than him but I was wrong - thanks "Chucky" for making my day a lot brighter!!!! I shot the image below in front of FIT in Manhattan - actually asked a guy to move (he was standing on it) so I could get a photo of it - this is true my Photography(art) is my weapon!!!

Happy Friday

beautiful day out today - got an early start made my smoothie and bounced on my urban rebounder - I am loving that thing - need to get up and go for walk too... going for a walk today a lunch with a coworker we shall see how that goes - i am not a fast walker but I like to walk long distances. I grabbed a salad for lunch and the good housekeeping magazine with Robin Roberts in it talking about her triple negative cancer. She has been good for 4 yrs changing her diet, the way she thinks and enjoying what she has. Living with Triple negative is a little stressful but we live with it. Not hearing the words you are cancer free is scary but I will continue to love to hear no disease detected. photos to follow
