I got my first tattoo a month after I finished treatment for breast cancer.  Something I had secretly wanted to do most of my life...It was the first item on my life list.  I got 2 more when I had my 5 year anniversary.

Ten years ago this week, I finished up my treatment and tonight I got my 10 year ink.  The phoenix is a symbol for rebirth, so I thought it fitting to be the subject for this milestone.  I am, after all, a somewhat different person today than I was back when this journey began.

Yeh...yeh...yeh....I know...I have to live with for the rest of my life....but hey....I've already lived a good portion of the rest of my life...

Don't Be Afraid...

...of the girl in the shades....visited the opthamologist earlier in the week and got my eyes dilated.  Didn't have my shades with me so they gave me these handy dandy slide-behind-your-glasses shades.  It was really hard trying to keep my head down and still drive myself back to work.  No retinal detachment, tho, so it's all good.

Common... I see these vans on the freeway quite a bit...sometimes just travellin' along, sometimes pulled over behind some I am wondering....are they looking for courteous drivers to reward them?  Or maybe they are looking for rude drivers to admonish.  Nope, I don't think they are looking for rude drivers to admonish...they would never be able to keep up.  Although it does say "frequent stops"
