Introduction Proving that breast cancer, in addition to producing a year of bad hair days, also provides titillating writing material.

To those new here: I had stage 1 breast cancer in 2006 that required a double mastectomy, chemo, radiation and reconstruction. My prognosis and my current health? Excellent. My attitude after this four-year interruption? Grateful. Aware. Adaptable. Focused. Feistier.
Interests Mountain biking, cruising through the stack of books on my nightstand, gardening and home maintenance, movies, music, organizing the clothes in my closet by color and category.
Favorite Movies Blade Runner, Napoleon Dynamite, Dumb and Dumber, Elf, Fargo (and anything else with Francis Macdormand in it), Pride and Prejudice (kidding)
Favorite Music Alison Krauss, Shawn Colvin, Kate Bush, the iPod mix my son created for my brother's bachelor poker party, My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Ben Harper
Favorite Books Forgiveness and Other Acts of Love, Emotional Alchemy, She's Come Undone, The Accidental Tourist, Stuart Little, anything by Anne Lamott
