- Contact my mom (Patsy Schalles 281.974.7777) if you miraculously have time in your day to drop off a meal. Our family has no food allergies and welcomes anything.
- Leave me ideas on books, movies, podcasts or TV shows; maybe this is the year I start watching Modern Family.
- I’m not going to post updates on my FB page, keeping it free for cat pictures and WSJ articles. But feel free to share if you think this journey resonates with someone.
- Text me! I’m the worst at even listening to voice mails – just ask my grandmother who says “they” are not giving me my messages. I’m also a dinosaur on AOL, still at carriepills if that’s better for you, but I confess to 1,400 unread messages. Text gets quickest reply: 281.799.1541.
- No pink things or Breast Cancer Awareness items. I do love soft things and tea.
- Don’t ask if I want a second opinion or offer additional doctors’ names. We’ve charted my course and I’m on my way.
- Pray for my courage and faith and my family’s fortitude.
And, as this street art from Houston’s Graffiti Building says:
Jeppe Hein (born 1974 in Copenhagen) is, according to the Public Art Fund “…known for his perceptually engaging, sculpturally inventive, and conceptually whimsical works. Often conceived for public spaces, his art captures a generous spirit that invites audiences to become active participants.” A new goal is to walk his Mirror Labyrinth in New York City. I’m working on finding out more about the street artist @Lurissu, but until then do yourself a favor and schedule a tour of Houston’s newest masterpieces through Laurie Mills’ Houston Mural Tours.
