Do you have light in your life or darkness? Most of us have a mix of the two. If you have trouble with finding the light some days. . catch a sunrise or a sunset! That is when God's light comes through the strongest. As a photographer, the photos I have treasured most are those that have caught that few moments of beauty early morning or right before dusk. Sometimes it catches me in such awe I have to remember to try and capture it through my lens. And rarely, if ever, does the lens see the full glory of what my eyes have been allowed to see but somehow I feel I must try and preserve it forever. Fortunately, when we cannot find actual light in our day we are given the ability to capture "light" in our minds through our spiritual beliefs or through appreciating the gifts in our life and gratitude for all that life has given us. Sometimes a beautiful reading can jar the mindset from darkness to light. So my hope for all is to find the light in your life. . through you eyes. . through your mind. . and most of all through your heart.
Love and Hugs,
LB is still there, still healing and it is good to be able to focus on something else! May you all feel "light" in your day!

We had a nice early breakfast downtown and then did a photo safari around town and as always we saw so many nice people and new nooks and crannies that we hadn't noticed before. The photo is a new little bakery that has opened in the downtown art district. Cute, very Silver Cityish, and we've sampled the tasty pastries there. Yumm. . .
Tomorrow we are off to Las Cruces for an eye doctor appointment for Tom and taking care of a couple of other big city things. And of course we will find a good lunch spot!
Just wanted to update to family, friends and Friends. . Much gratitude here. . one day at a time!
Hugs and love. . .Sandy

We made a quick trip over a long weekend to Mancos. The golden aspen and snow capped mountains were beautiful. It was great to see old friends and old favorite places but was good to get back to a much warmer Silver City. I guess I didn't remember Colorado being that cold! And winter hasn't even begun there. I am still wearing sandals here and I like it!
I am still doing Ok with the L.B. issue. Impatient! Wound care should be coming to an end soon and am anxious for that final healing to happen. After that I go back to Mayo for a mammogram and check up. It will feel good to get that assurance that all has healed well. I am grateful for less discomfort and the energy to do what needs to be done. And for Tom's patience and support. And for his bringing me my first cup of coffee every morning. Life is good. And I am sure that next year will be a good-er year. :)
Love and hugs to all. . .
Colorado aspens and evergreens dusted with snow. So beautiful. And cold. Sandals and 70 degrees in New Mexico feel good.

I am doing well with my treatment. Wound care is winding down and it was good to talk with my Mayo doctor last week and be assured that all is well and going as it should. My local doctor had also done a "visual" .(healing well but not a pretty picture!) Am feeling less discomfort all the time and I think that must be a good sign. And sleeping like a baby! We have done a couple of shows with our photography and my energy level is good. I have learned to be careful with too much heat. Don't know why, but since the radiation treatment, too much sunshine wipes me out!
Seems that everywhere lately there has been the sadness of those lost to or fighting cancer. I feel so fortunate for the early catch and good prognosis. But until there is a cure found for this dreaded disease the odds are scary for all. A cure for cancer must be out there,somewhere. Someday it will happen. Until then, we can all be grateful for the good doctors who battle for the survival of their patients. A cure is what must be found. . . . .
Love and hugs to all. . And my gratitude for all of you. For being there. . I know you are. . I can feel it. .
