New Painting Alert

Over the past few months, several of my dearest friends have informed me that in one way or another, Cancer has infected their lives.  Some more harshly than others but nonetheless, it is something no one needs to be dealing with.

Alas, in one of my frustrated "why is the world so cruel" rants, I painted the following.  You can take what you will from it but there was definitely a logic to the painting.  A journey so to speak.  I will leave it at that.  Hope it makes you think.

Yup, that is what my legs are made of right now.  And I love it.

Last week was one hell of a week.  I played over 15 hours of tennis and cycled over 60ks over the course of a few days.  I know that doesn't seem like much but considering I haven't been on my bike in months and it was my first rides of the season, I think that is pretty good. 

Yesterday, Urs and I pumped out a pretty quick 35k in the CN Cycle event.  Although we left 5 minutes early to avoid the large peleoton, we were never passed along the way.  When I arrived at the finish line, the guy at the line said that non of the 35kers had come in yet.  So in my mind, we won.  ;)  lol 

Right after that, I had 2 hours of tennis in the bubbles at the rideau.  The non air conditioned sauna bubbles.  It was gross.  Within 40 minutes you were swaying from the heat.  Not to mention, I was soaking wet.  When your arms sweat, you know its hot.  Anyway, by the time that was over, I could barely walk.  Advil and a cold shower were heaven.  Plus the deep fried tofu didn't hurt either.  Yum. 

I am soooo looking forward to more weekends like this.  Bring it on summer.
