CSN & sometimes Y


If I was told that I could only listen to one group 
or the rest of my life...

it would be them!!


Most photos taken at Woodstock are of CS&N....This photo is the only photo taken of CSN & Y at Woodstock by Barry Levine...I bought a copy from Levine at the 40th Anniversary concert...

KarmaTube: Earth Hour 2012

"This Earth Hour 2012, starting at 8:30pm on Saturday, March 31, participate in the world's largest voluntary action for the environment by switching off your lights for one hour."

It may seem and overwhelming task when we look at what needs to be done to save our Earth...but if we each do our small part not only is it good for us, psychologically, but that small part placed along side the other small parts...like a puzzle... becomes a big picture...that is how we make an impact on the environment...we need to ignore the naysayers...

Like the Hummingbird, we each do our small part, together we do great things...

Think about it...:)

Justice for Trayvon....

Please sign the Petition to get justice for Trayvon....This is an act of injustice and pure racism...this needs to be tried in court so that ALL evidence can be seen....not covered-up by the Sanford Police Dept and Ex-Judges....


& why are conservatives making an issue about him throwing the middle finger in a Twitter picture and having a tattoo???  Have they looked at 90% of the kids on the social medias lately!!!!!!!!


Please sign......

DIY Friday...Dream Catcher & Ojas de la Dios


Last weekend was a rainy one and I pulled a muscle in my back so I was down a bit...So it was a good chance to try a couple of things I have wanted to craft...

First a Dream-catcher... I used birch for the frame and tried to keep to natural items.....hemp, wood beads, etc.. It is small... the size of my palm...


I added a couple of my favorite gems....some Moonstone which is known as a lover's stone and is also known as a "dream stone" in India... as well as lapis lazuli which can bring things more clearly to the mind and  of protection..
I add feathers that I have found in the woods so most likely they are turkey feathers...

I enjoyed making this and want to make another only with sinew this time...The hubby said it came out great for my first time!! I think he is bias! <3


 I also made a Ojas de la Dios.... God's Eye...  

Babylon Sisters posted one from Esty on her site 


& I LOVE the metal frame so I tried my hand at it but it didn't some out too good...The wire I used was much too heavy and hard to bend (I need some new tools) ...Hemp is hard to twine around metal without it sliding all over the place...but I discovered some tricks that I will try on the next one because I want to use the hemp twine again.....



Anyway, it was a good way to pass the time, let my back rest ( I was back up & running on Monday!!) and learn a couple of things...this will be continued!!!

 Have a great weekend!!!

Wednesday Women: Cancer Care Center of York County


This is the Cancer Care Center....Words to describe this place...light, airy, peaceful, laughter, homey ( there is a huge stone fireplace when you walk in) earthy uplifting & safe...
A huge part of my life during 2006 and half of 2007....The Center opened the month I started my Radiation treatments...in fact I was the first one to use the radiation machine....It is 15 minutes from home....it was fate, I truly believe that....

 I owe my life to some outstanding people...Mainly to a special group of women who helped me through an adverse time in my life...


The first one is Dr. D....( Dr Patricia Deisler)... I love this lady...she holds such a special place in my heart 4-ever...She arrived just as I received my diagnosis of Stage 3 rectal cancer.....fate stepped in once again...I remember the first time I saw her...she had just arrived from,I think, Minnesota that day....the hubby  and I were waiting for my first meeting but we had never seen her...We see this woman walking back and forth between rooms definitely on a mission... She had on snow boots and a quilted jacket..she looked so down to earth that I thought " I hope this is my doctor"!!!  she was... Dr D is the best thing that could have stepped into my life..and the hubby agrees!!

At that first meeting after looking over my records she looked at me and said..."Your going to beat this...You will be fine...we will see you soon..."

and I was!

 Sue Laliberte is another angel...she is so up beat and makes everyone laugh but she exudes a maternal feeling that just makes you feel safe...She was in charge of changing the chemo in my fanny pack that I wore 24/7...and listening to you vent & cry when needed....Sue is amazing!! She is Dr D's right hand....

Robin was in charge of my infusion that I had once a week after I recovered from surgery... She was alot of fun to be around and made the Infusion room even more brighter...

This is the Infusion Room that Robin was in charge of.... where you receive your chemotherapy...It is a bright sunny room very meditative...Other than the chemo bags hanging form the hangers it seems like a big day room to spend a few hours, napping, reading or watching some tv...


Along with Dr D, Sue and Robin there is also Kim, Colleen  & Linda...





who were all instrumental in my treatment and healing whether it was talking, laughing or listening...they all had a part...
I love them all!!

My Radiation Oncologist was Dr Sarah Thurman, she has moved to another hospital now but I was so fortunate to have had her as my doctor as well. On my first visit with her, she told me that I would consider my colostomy bag my best friend. After she said that to me, it changed how I looked at it...

From the start I had positive reinforcements from my doctors changing my outlook at the upcoming job ahead of me of battling cancer...

Not to be forgotten, is my surgeon Dr Dougald Macgillvary, at Maine Medical Center, who did a fantastic job at removing the intruder and leaving me with a pretty stoma as far as stomas go...she is small and beautiful......I am SO thankful to have had him as my surgeon...



So to end the Colo-rectal Cancer Awareness month, I want to extend my heartfelt thanks all these individuals for their part in my healing and beating cancer..I could have not done so without them...
 Though I miss seeing them, they told me that it is better that I don't see them...You don't want to see them either...SO

The moral of this story: 
Get Your Colonoscopy!!!!
