Hi, again, Joan!

I got an interesting piece this morning from and, knowing that you're currently wrestling with the C-entity, thought I'd pass this on to you.

I hope it's of use.

Hi, again, Joan.

Some time back, you asked me for some more music to soothe your chemo-tested senses.  My apologies for being so long, but give the following a try.  It is a long-time friend of mine:

Please enjoy!

HEY, Joan!

I didn't quite know where to put the following, but I knew you would want to see it ... so here you go:

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the new pictures showing you happy in your garden!

Joan, Hang in there on the chemo and RT!  The light is at the end of the tunnel for the chem - you can do it!  I will get better!  You are much loved and cared about.

Hey, Joan!

Don't know as you're much interested in the whole Fort Hood - Nidal Malik Hasan trial business, but if you are, you might have a look at my latest blog entry about it.

I sent you a video?  Must have been sleep-computing!  Seriously, that was either a while ago or someone else sent it.  So what was it???  [grin!]

I love your attitude and spunk (and rooster photo)! When my sister was undergoing surgery and chemo, I did what you mentioned to help. I certainly didn't pray (her twin sister did enough of that!). I have high hopes you'll conquer and recover.

Hey, it's me again!

Don't know if you saw this on my status, but I thought it would have particular resonance with you:

Hey, Joan!

Glad to hear you enjoyed Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir 4.  Since you did get a kick out of that, you might want to look at his other Virtual Choir projects:

They're a bit more conventional in their video content, but the music remains Eric's ... and he knows what he's doing!

I used to teach middle schoolers (and raised 4 of my own), so I know the directions they take. Both sisters are vegetarians--one a vegan, so my meal was mostly "out of the garden". I did fix a couple of burgers and sausages for Dad and myself. He's 95 and enjoyed the family gathering (so to speak). Dessert was a rhubarb "bread cake". Despite my 120 lb frame, I love to eat! Be well.

Hey Joan. Thanks for the comments on my dinner post. Sorry you don't have an appetite. I had my twin sisters and father over for a July 4th cookout, and my "cancer radiation treatment" sister couldn't eat--no appetite. So I understand. I love to cook also--maybe not gourmet, but I get by.  When I was married, we had people over all the time. They still never reciprocated. Who knows why.

Joan, love your new pic!

Wonderful avatar that Ruth made for you.

So sweet.

Hey, Joan!  Regarding my piece: The Great Evangelical Recession, please repost to Facebook or wherever with my compliments! 

Glad to hear you came through the chemo okay.  Hope the next time (if there must be one) is easier!

Who would ever guess you have memory problems. Your witty comments, etc. indicate otherwise. For certain, electronics are way beyond my realm of comprehension. Hence, no cell phone (or any other gadget). "Give me the simple life".

Hey, Joan!  The muse paid me a visit yesterday, at least partly courtesy of a show on NPR.  The result was this.  Please give it a look when you have a moment.

Joan, thank you.  Beautiful image, park bench in wildflower meadow.

It's difficult to get time for rest.  It's OK though.  I listen to many people through the day who tell me how hard their jobs are, smaller staff, more expectations, longer hours, no breaks, and if someone can't handle it, they are out.  My situation is not nearly that bad.  I will be checking on retirement options, but probably cant for a few years yet.

Yesterday, I mowed the orchard.  Mini-orchard.  I stopped every 15 minutes or so to empty the grass bag, and used that to mulch trees and shrubs.  I planted some tomatoes and other plants.  Then I built another raised bed.  I was so exhausted I could barely move.  Today I'm stiff and sore.  It feels really good.  So work and "work" have different effects.  Physical, if purely voluntary, is much less draining than mental/  high pressure.

I love hearing about your experiences.  You make my day.  Thank you.

Hoping you are doing ok with chemotherapy and recovering from your surgery.  I think about you a lot!
