Susan, sorry you went through that chemo. My dear sister went through it and lost her hair, also. She got a wig that was so good, I thought her own hair had grown back over night! Unfortunatley, chemo didn't work for my sister. She is in a better place.

Marly,
Sorry to hear about your sister but recognizing she is gone to a better place is a comfort. Cancer sends so many loved ones there. Its been 6 years for me now with no sign of a return, so I was one of the lucky ones. I am glad that treatment is getting better but I wish the scientists/doctors would do more about prevention so no one has to go through the pain and fear.

With the Boston Marathon close in our memory I found this an interesting quote.

"The more equality women have, the fairer, more civilized and tolerant society will be. Sexual equality is a lot more effective against terrorism than military strength."
Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero

Thanks, Susan. Makes one think, doesn't it?
I've been wanting to say, I love your tag line, "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" One. Precious. I love it, Susan.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Steve Jobs
Marly

Marly,
I'm glad you like that quote too. It seemed to call to me.
Here's another from the same source.

Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”

I like the train of thought here,Marly, very positive and encouraging. We aren't victims of our lives, we are the drivers.
