For some folks, chemotherapy is a common term. When you take this brute force method of attacking cancer, however, it can be an ordeal. Linda knows; she has taken it more than most. It makes starting the medicine tomorrow a little different. The circumstance does not stop living, it just makes it more precious. So this evening we spent it together under the heavens–sketching a sky object together and broadcasting on Night Skies Network.
The “under the heavens” expression is a bit unique, because we sat in the living room in front of a monitor that showed the output from the telescope, which was outside. It is fitted with a astro video camera and the signal is pumped to where we. We like doing things this way because we can sit together and develop our observations while talking with each other. It was such a nice relaxing time! Here are the sketches of M43–an object right next to the Great Orion Nebula. Linda’s is first.
