Five years ago at the Maine Event, I was absent. I had just been diagnosed with breast cancer but didn't tell anyone. I didn't want to cast a pall on the happy Maine Event. During the event someone suggested making me prayer flags. What a sweet gesture and it meant so much to me.
I hung them in my bedroom from the ceiling surrounding my bed and in the spring I took them outside to hang by the Art Greenhouse.
This past week I was "dismissed" by my Oncologist - five years cancer free. Some of you in this picture will be coming back this year for the 8th annual Maine Event. In celebration I will be hanging the remaining prayer flags in the Art Greenhouse. Yes, some of them lasted five years outside through Maine winters and sunny summers.
Thank you everyone for your kindness and love. It worked!!!
