On Wednesday Ken and I and some friends visited the Indianapolis Zoo to see the new baby elephant and the Dolphin Show. One of the dolphins is named Kimo which I understand is the Hawaiian word for happiness (if this is wrong please tell me!). Today Ken had his fourth Chemo treatment. HMMM, Kimo – Chemo, serendipity? I always take drawing tools with me when Ken has chemo and this time I took a 6″ X 9″ heavy duty sketchbook and my set of Sharpie markers. I used the edge of the Sharpie case as a straight edge – drew some lines, some curves, some spirals and started coloring. I stayed with primary and secondary colors because I wanted a happy, cheerful look…not that everything is going well but I was tickled by the play of words (Kimo/Chemo) and Ken and I had one of our best vacations ever in Hawaii. So a tribute to Kimo!
