Love Letter to Life 09.28.2022 The $100 Zucchini

Dear Life, Yesterday I went to the Farmer’s Market after receiving chemicals for scans that make me a little spacey. Somewhere along the way, I lost a $100. I remember seeing it in my wallet while pulling out singles but possibly I paid $100 for a zucchini or a dozen eggs. Or I dropped it on the ground. Need to be more careful after treatments and scans handling money and navigating life. Someone has it and I thought, “Pay It Forward”.

Love Letter to Life 09.27.2022 HOPE

Dear Life, My sister sent me this beautiful card that I’ve placed on my desk along with my “love birds” and small gold heart in small Klimt dish that I bought in Vienna. Scans are done and we will see the results by week’s end. I’m happily drinking a Latte at home. It’s a beautiful day in Santa Fe so I’ll go to Farmer’s Market where the bounty and plentitude of Autumn’s harvest can be seen. HOPE IS A SMALL REBELLION.

Love Letter to Life 09.26.2022 Inside Me

Dear Life, The day before a PetScan is always a bit edgy. I wonder, “What’s happening inside me?” Many questions surface to which I breathe into and answer, “No one knows what truly is next so live as best you can in the moment”. Today while fasting (a requirement for the scan) I will clear and clean the studio work tables. Go through materials, recent art, organize and set up for new work. Begin. This is my day, my gift of life to be lived with all the feelings and unknowns. Discover what is inside of me.

Love Letter to Life 09.21.2022 Be Fearless

Dear Life, Yesterday I had an Immunotherapy infusion. I sat down and the nurse connected me with the drugs through my port (the device in my chest for drugs to go into and for taking out blood when needed in large quantities). Each time requires courage and fearlessness. PEMBRO is a trial drug. Next week, I have a PetScan so we can see what’s happening inside of me. We’re looking for clear results. Please be with me on this one.

Love Letter to Life 09.20.2022 Sun Setting Earlier

Dear Life, As the sunsets come earlier each evening, I smile thinking about the summer. I had an excellent vacation visiting family in CT and friends in Maine, good news from scans about cancer clearing out of my body (more scans are next week), day trips in NM with friends, and many days with my dear mentor Virginia Dwan before her passing. I am grateful for the opportunity to live a rich, creative, love-filled life.

Love Letter to Life 09.18.2022 Spiritual Goofball

Dear Life, In my morning meditation and writing, I asked myself, In perfect trust, what would I do? Am I open to change? Open to what is? Do I believe in divinely inspired outcomes? Are my Body and Mind living in alignment with Spirt? Or am I praying words and acting mindlessly? This morning my Body said, “Please don’t rush.” My Spirit agreed and made me smile when I fell from my lofty thinking into my pillows! I am a Spiritual Goofball!

Love Letter to Life 09.14.2022 Happy Birthday Tracy

Dear Life, Today is my daughter’s birthday. I am filled with love and joy to have her in my life after 52 years of separation. Tracy was born on this day a beautiful, healthy baby. I was fifteen years old. My parents decided that she be released for adoption. Tracy and I met on 01.14.2020 through Ancestry. Our DNA said, “100% match”. She and her children are a gift in my life. My family expanded and is giving me a new experience of love. Thank you!

Love Letter to Life 09.12.2022 A Luminary In Our Lives

Dear Life, Virginia Dwan was a mentor and friend for over forty years. She left this world a week ago but her light will continue to shine through all the people, places, and things that she touched. This photo was taken 2017 at Star Axis, Charles Ross’s earthwork in New Mexico. We traveled many miles together and our Spirits will continue the journey forevermore.
