The reality of brain cancer. This custom-fitted mesh mask is used to bolt me down on the table while radiation beams are pinpointed at Lyle. This happens 5 times a week for 4 weeks straight.

For those of you who don't already know, I vowed to take one picture a day for this entire year. I am proud to day that I have been successful in doing so! This is a few weeks overdue, but here is a video of my pictures from the first half of the year. Enjoy!

The sleepy puppy has claimed my bed as his own.
I was reminiscing with my good friend Rara (you can follow her blog here), and during the course of our conversation, she sent me a short video of a lion cub giving a human a hug.

Nikki & Milo -- poor things -- guarding my walkway even at this late hour, as I, like most law interns do, stay up late on a holiday weekend working.
