In the midst of all the preparations for Thanksgiving tomorrow which we are hosting this year, it’s time to stop and remember what is really important.
For me it is the fact that I am here, feeling great and loving life- family, friends, art, travel, learning, connecting, surfing, reading… it’s all good. Even the tough stuff.
This piece is part of my breast cancer series. Always wanted to come up with a catchier title but it is what it is. A friend took many shots of my body before and after my bilateral mastectomy in 2002 and those images became the basis for works on paper that were shown at the first Herspace Art of Survival created by Dr. Beth Deutch in Long Branch, NJ.
To those who have come before me….
Because of you, I am here to your courage
I am Grateful.
now time to walk my pooches, clean the bathrooms and start the food prep!
