Wow, this cancer journey is a roller coaster ride. I have started really recovering from the chemo that was not working, am feeling stronger and better than ever, but the numbers are not reflecting this. The CEA count went up 200 points. It is 400 now. The oncologist says sometimes the numbers go up, but I should rely more on how I am feeling physically, that it has been the best indicator. So we are going to stay with this protocol for another month and see how it goes.

In the meantime, I am getting ready for a two person show in September and October at the Beatitudes Church. It is at 7 St. and Glendale in Phoenix, AZ. More detail to follow. In addition to 5 paintings, I intend to have five leather and five velvet dreamcatchers. Here are photos of 3 of the leather waiting for feathers and beads.



Loki, Sunny and Charlie say “Hi”, the cats give you the look, and the wild birds fly away! Enjoy!

  1. The mind and heart are stronger than the medicine! Love, Maggie-

  2. Go with your gut, Bert (and forgive the tacky pun :> ) God has always used your instincts to serve you well! Personally, I’m thrilled to see you’re back in the action. Go Bert, Go! Uh, and remember to rest. ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

    Wow, your next art show will be nearby! Let us know dates, especially if/when you will be there. I look forward to your posts and I’m very happy when you feel better. My prayers continue for you.

    • It starts Sept 11 and runs through the end of October. It will be open Sundays 10am to 11am, but you can make an appointment at the church anytime to view. Beatitudes at 7 st and Glendale.

  4. I think your oncologist is awesome for recognizing that you feel better and that is what counts. And just love the dreamcatchers even without their feathers and beads.

  5. Thank you so much!
