New Mexico Bound

Leaving today for the beautiful Southwest. Won't be back until almost midnight on May 22.

My story is emailed out and copied. I'm part way through critiquing the other stories that people who finished early were able to email out. Walter Jon Williams is making dinner tomorrow night in Taos.

The sky will be that incredible color blue. People will actually talk about writing. I'll make Howard Waldrop a pie.

Do something nice for yourself while I'm gone, because I'll be doing something nice for myself.

Have a wonderful time. You certainly deserve it after fighting so hard for so long.

Brava! I shall think of you, out there under that great bowl of sky, eating pie and having a wonderful time. If anyone has it coming, you do.

Enjoy your trip! It's the perfect celebration for the end of chemo. (Congratulations on that, too!) Looking forward to the tales you have when you're back.

Maybe you can buy a T-shirt that says:

* TAOS *

Even if it actually doesn't happen that fast.

I hope you're having a blast in Taos! I wish I could have made it this year.

I'm so glad you're getting away and having fun. I certainly did the same while everyone else was off in Chicago for thier little Hivemeet. (btw, did these guys have ANY idea what I love bees would do to people?)

I got my cancer results back. I'm all clear.

Autumn, did we have any idea? Well, we hoped...

Glad to hear about your results.

Thanks for writing about your experiences and challenges with Hodgkins. Three weeks ago my husband was diagnosed, and today he starts his first chemo treatment. Like you, he has been declared stage 2 and has about 6 months of treatments ahead of him. I've never had any doubt that he will beat this, but it helps tremendously to read other people's experiences and triumphs.

It also helps that you’re a wonderful writer and that you infused humor into your situation. I wish you years of happiness away from Planet Cancer, and success with your writing.

Best wishes.
