Today, Anna in radiation said I am a good sport.  I am good at staying still, and the machine and I are now the best of friends.    Of course, Anna  worries about the machine pinching my arm, but  nothing can affect  my day.  I am floating on clouds, even though there aren't any clouds, but there must be plenty of  silver lining,  because I am romping on it.

Today was my check-out day from radiation even though I have one more.   I met with Dr. Poen, who is gentle and tender, and radiates joy, which he said is true of all the people in that department and he is right.  It is a radiant place, in all ways.  Mary Pat gave me my final instructions.   I am well-cared for, and am welcomed to return if I need help.

Ah, breathe.  I am very happy today.

I met my friend who is visiting from New York, and celebrated my first trip to the ocean.  We walked to the beach at Tennessee Valley, me in two sun-proof hats, and a sun-proof jacket.  I can't tell you how my heart exulted to be in my favorite place, with all the greens and beginnings of gold. We met a fine quail.   I walked right into the water, and baptised myself with it.  My head is refreshed.  Walking back, we saw what could only be a river otter in the lagoon there.   It was unbelievable.  What a day!!
