Almost there...

Hi folks, sorry I've been so silent. The most remarkable side effect of the radiation has been to shut off the public communication section of my brain. I otherwise felt fine, and unless the machine breaks down again, I'll be done with all this foolishness on St. Patrick's Day! (Well, the radiation part, anyway.) There is still lots to report, so I'll catch up with you as soon as possible once my brain is more functional.

In the meantime, I wanted to share these inspirational projects with you. The first is a collection of art and the story of each piece. To quote from the site, "Launched in 2004, this program was conceived by Eli Lilly and Company as a way to honor the journey of those whose lives have been affected by cancer. The rich tapestry of emotions conveyed in these pieces of art endures and provides hope and inspiration to others."

The Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for Breast Cancer Awareness. The exhibit consists of 49 original works of art which are unique, entertaining, humorous, and beautiful to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors. Take a look at the captions, which are half the fun!

Today my friend Dikla emailed me from Israel with this wonderful gift, and I send it to all of you with my love. (Turn on the speakers and enjoy...)
