SO happy to see you are doing well!

I love how you call the cancer stuff a massive inconvenience! It was hard for me to realize I needed an oncologist, still seems surreal, but.... Glad you had such good news and are feeling so well.

Hoping the consultation went well, D, and that the runaway train has the brakes on. (and, oh my goodness, the sound of that song took me back a few years!)

My boys have a CD of old children's favourites, of which this is one. Three generations of our family enjoy listening, albeit for different reasons.

I have train dreams too, and always feel slightly miffed at the smutty insinuations of psycho-analysts. To me, it is perfectly obvious that they are anxiety dreams about life feeling a little out of control for one reason or another. I do hope that your runaway train slows down now and gives you plenty of time to choose which station to alight at. Less 'The Runaway Train', in fact, more 'Adlestrop'. There, that's better already, isn't it?!

Thank you everyone. The consultation went much as I'd expected a consultation with an oncologist to go. It's very much a one size fits all (even when it doesn't) approach -but will probably write more of that anon . . .

And, yes, Dancing Beastie, Adlestrop is just the thing.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.

    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?

    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
