Relay for Life

June 13th, 2009

We went to the Relay for Life at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. There were close to a thousand people on hand for the ceremony. There were tears, laughter and dancing. It is a great celebration of the life of lost loved ones, and the life of cancersurvivors.

My Mother and Mother-In-Law are both cancer survivors so the Relay for Life event is very dear to my family.

A treasure troll of a man, with hobbit feet and a sharp pointy head. You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast

    Aren’t days like that rewarding? Love the luminary sketch. I too am a survivor and thank you for your efforts.

    As an extra note, since you were so young in 1976, your dad is a survivor also, bone cancer of the left hand.

    It was a very good day, Deborah.

    Mom, how come I’m 38 years old learning this on my blog? Sheesh people, how many secrets can you have?

    Your dad wrote that comment. To be real honest, I don’t remember much about it. I do remember that this is the time he took vacation but his supervisor charged it to sick leave. Only sick leave he took in 22 years!
