friends encouraged me to create a blog clearing house for others to follow, respond to and share-so this is kind of a global journal about the unfolding experience of discovering, testing, treating and being with, breast cancer.

sharing—and may we all shine going easy filled with light
From G-upon seeing e.s Elm-
When I am among the trees, especially the willows and the honey locust, equally the beech, the oaks and the pines, they give off such a hint of gladness. I would almost say that they save me, and daily. I am so distant from the hope of myself, in which I have goodness, and discernment, and never hurry through the world but walk slowly, and bow often. Around me the trees stir in their leaves and call out, "Stay awhile." The light flows from the branches. And they call again, "It's simple," they say, "and you too have come into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled with light, and to shine." Mary Oliver
