Carrying National Breast Cancer Awareness Month One Step Too Far

The Rib and Chop House marked National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by having the wait staff wear pink T-shirts and serving cotton candy margaritas. They filled the glass with cotton candy, then poured a margarita over it. The result was the glass you see to your left. We ordered them, but my friend Patty had to drink mine.

Ironically, I’m going in for a biopsy and MRI in about fifteen minutes. I got up an hour early to write a poem about this but when I came back to my blog from importing this photo from my phone, it had vanished. Hope that is a good sign. Get your mammograms, gals!!!! (Note, added Oct 21: It was a good sign.  I tested benign!!)


The prompt today was express.

(Something there is that doesn’t want me to express what I really did write to this prompt, so I will let the matter lie.)

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I hope all went well today and that your results are negative.
    I will be participating in my 5th Susan G Komen 3day as a route safety person. Its all about raising money to stop that ugly thing called breast cancer.
