Getting Back to Normal Perhaps

img053 copy copy

Recovering from surgery seems like a good time to blog again. But after I recover from this surgery, I’ll start taking Tamoxifen and that should be it. Except for checkups every three months (until I graduate to every six months and then to once a year), all this cancer stuff should be behind me. I’m officially NED. No Evidence of Disease.

My hair is growing back (slowly in my opinion). I think I have Peter Capaldi hair. (Google him if you must.) My eyelashes and eyebrows are growing back! Life moves back to normal.

For the time being. What is a normal life anyway?

Usually for me a normal life is getting the kid to school, getting myself to work, and fitting in writing and art where I can. I like my drama in my fiction not in my life.

My novel, The Blue Jar, should be out in print soon thanks to all the hard work of my publisher, Plum Tree Books. I hope to have my next manuscript ready soon too. And more art. I’ve got a show coming in October (my favorite month!). If I don’t know what else to do, I know I can always make something.

What are you looking forward to in the next year?

One thought on “Getting Back to Normal Perhaps

  1. It would be a nice start to hear you’re completely recovered anyway. After that I’d like to regain my impulse to write and perhaps finish the Barsetshire series and start the book my daughter wants for my grandson, full of silly poems and sketches I did for her when she was small. She wants me to write a few more though doing sketches these days will be hard.
    I wish you all the very best with The Blue Jar.
