Happy National Poetry Month (and one year out from chemo)

Still crazy at work but had to share this new Poetry in Motion subway card featuring art by Sebago sailing co-chair Holly Sears. In addition to patiently teaching many, many newbies (including yours truly) how to sail dinghies, she is an AMAZING artist. This piece is from Hudson River Explorers, her glorious public art installation in the overpasses at the Metro-North Tarrytown station. I always like the Poetry in Motion series and I'll be looking for this one especially! Click here for the two posts that I did after going to see the installation and the gallery exhibit that she had at the Hudson River Museum at the time that the piece was first unveiled.

Also have to have a little "whoop whoop" moment today as Facebook kindly reminded me that one year ago today, I rang the bell after my last chemo infusion. I wasn't going to go to my Irish music session tonight but I think that's an anniversary that deserves a pint and a few tunes. Seeing the doctors is getting to be a less regular thing now, they extend the intervals between appointments as you go along without any trouble, but I had doctor week a couple of weeks ago and so far all's well.

A bit thumbs up to you on your chemo-versity. I shared your post with my sister in law, who used to be a frequent traveler on Metro North before she moved to the New York City she loves.

Thanks so much!

I've never really wanted to move to the suburbs and increase my commute, but if I somehow had to, I would pick one of the Hudson riverfront towns - love that train ride.

Thank you! Great guest session leader tonight, I had a good dinner, played some tunes, and said a mental toast over a Dark & Stormy to my medical team.
