Life is full of challenges, but clouds can have silver linings!

As you can see from the picture, Carolyn doesn't have much hair now, but she's come up from the back of the formation to fly in front while I go on to fly with Gladys.

Chemo has similarities to thesis writing. Once you get used to the routine, you can handle it better.

BTW, GB....Carolyn has sent a message to you.
"Never give up." She's not planning to at any time. We discussed it and it's just not an option.

Flying Solo - Sometimes it's harder

Geese flying in V-shaped patterns are saving energy. Each bird takes advantage of the uplifting air coming off the bird in front of it. This makes flying easier. When the bird in front gets tired, it moves to the back of the formation. The next bird in line takes the lead.

DGB, I'll be flying with you again very soon!

Sharon, I miss you...

For the first time since last February, when I came across Sharon and she agreed to help me through this process, Sharon and I have been unable to make contact for more than a couple of days... I realize now how important immediate feedback is in online facilitation! Nertheless, I also recognize a new stage in my development towards autonomy as a researcher/writer:I keep writing, knowing I can do quite a lot on my own, confident, reassured.... When Sharon comes back, I may have to undo a bit, but who cares???
