Random thoughts...

 It has been a really tough day.  My shoulder continues to be painful and I strongly suspect that it is more bone metastasis.  I've been trying to convince my oncologist, but he always brushes it off....and it feels very much like my pelvis did before it broke because of the cancer in it back in 2009.  This is one of the most maddening things about getting treatment in Ohio....My tumor markers have risen, and I'm going to get a P.E.T. scan on Tuesday and will start chemo again on the following Tuesday.  Not good, but it is the life of a stage IV cancer patient. I just keep on hoping that maybe somehow, I can kick it back like I did back in 1998 after finishing the treatment for my initial stage IV diagnosis.

At left is Adela Aker's Luminosity.  Adela had several pieces exhibited in Fiber Philadelphia, most with horse hair like this one. I was fascinated by the texture and reflective quality her pieces had.   This particular piece is exhibited at the Snyderman Gallery, which I felt was a magical place.

Just outside the Snyderman is this decrepit building which intregued me.  One can hope that someone sometime will be able to take and rehab it.   I loved it that Vivien Zepf photographed the same building and put it on her blog.  You can see it here.

I am extremely fatigued today, which may be because of the pain.  It was wonderful having my daughter home for Easter.  I had hoped to get back to work on finishing a couple of quilts for a local show and working on the piece I started in Philadelphia...but not tonight.

Here's hugs and wishes for your own personal miracles during this season in which two faiths recollect miracles, and the miracle of spring continues to amaze us.
