I'm an artist who's redefined her life several times. After a career in the computer field, then living and traveling for five years in an RV, I now share a home with my mom and four Italian greyhounds. I'm a thriving breast cancer survivor, and am living my journey to be a joyful, healthy woman without limitations.
Continue to eat nutritious foods, and avoid highly processed junk. Ultimately, achieve a healthy body for life!
Lots of veggies and whole foods. Eliminate most processed foods. Exercise, especially walking. Keep focused on how good a healthy body feels.
I'm an artist, I enjoy my dogs, friends and family, nature, walking, reading, arts, fantasy roleplaying, and quiltmaking.

This is the fourth time I have tried to leave a message for you, but my computer keeps losing it before I can post it! Each time, my coments get shorter.
I'll try to beat my computer to the punch this time.
I really like your Page & all the Blogs you have written. Your dogs are beautiful and your artwork is impressive. I am a breast cancer survivor too. I'm a dog lover as well. There are more things I wanted to say, but I want to get this posted!

I just checked out your Page and read your Blog and liked them very much. I love your dogs, and your art work is beautiful!
I'm a breast cancer survivor too. I had a mastectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy in 1986. I truly understand the hard times you've been through, but it sounds like you're doing all the right things. Happy days ahead!

I just read your Page and the Blogs that you have written. I liked them all very much, but one in particular really caught my attention. The one about "jangling and clutter" felt like my own words. I can really identify with all that you expressed in that blog.
I also had breast cancer and I'm considered a survivor at this stage. I had a mastectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy in 1986, so I truly understand how that has affected your life. You are doing all the right things, and I believe you have a beautiful future ahead of you.
I'm a creative type myself, but I spread myself too thin over too many different types of artistic endeavors and had never reached the level of achievement that you have, Great work!
I'm also a dog lover in a big way! Non dog lovers think I'm a nut! Right now I have a Border-Bully (Border Collie-Pitt Bull) that we rescued from a shelter, a Cocker-Setter that is now blind & diabetic, and a tiny 12-year old Pekingese-Shih Tzu who was scheduled for a "needle in the paw" by her owner who lives next door. My daughter brought one cat with her when she moved in and he is now 20 years old. It's kind of like an infirmary around my house!
The greyhounds are beautiful! I read an article recently, asking for people to consider adopting retired greyhounds that are scheduled to be put down. I was horrified, but I just can't adopt any more fur babies right now. I did talk to my uncle about it though. He loves dogs too and raises German Shepherds
