Class Last Night

Class went well last night. I’m excited to say I got an A- on last week’s assignment. That is better than what I expected ... that is for sure. My next assignment, due in December, is a group project. It’s a training needs analysis for an organization. The truth is that I’d rather not be doing this right now but on the other hand it might just be the distraction I need.

Speaking of distractions ... I think I’m going to get busy with a few other things too. There are some Arts & Medicine support groups through the Cancer Institute. Yesterday a couple of the ladies were talking about a knitting group starting up this month and a watercolor painting group starting in November. I might just sign up for both.

Way to go on getting that A on your last assignment! The other classes (watercolor, etc.) sound great, too! Wish I could attend! ;)

That's awesome Daria. A few new things to occupy your time will help. Knitting and watercolors are relaxing.

You have been in my thoughts since I read your update the other day. You are a strong woman, so hang on, dear Daria. The new chemo and your spirit will keep outrunning the pink demon. I read more every day of women surviving with advanced cancer. Many hugs,

Hi Daria! The knitting and painting sound like great therapy! Nothing a little creativity to soothe the soul. Or express the soul!! I say, go for it!! <3 <3

Hi Daria - glad to hear about the knitting and watercolour classes - I was so sorry to read about your liver tumour growing... I think distracting yourself, and just getting the most out of life that you enjoy, is the right thing to do. And no steroids is wonderful. Take care...

I have found the weekly art classes for cancer survivors, with discussions lead by an art therapist, to be one of my valuable healing tools. I even took digital photographs to better appreciate my work and then send the images to others.
