I don't know if you want comments or not to these poetic diary like thoughts? But the writing is beautiful and poignant. I am glad you are writing this Brian and I know it it not just for you but for all those who have a face but not the voice, I am sure you write for many.

I don't think I'll comment on them any more, but you should know that I'm reading them, and they're very affecting.

Cheers

Nice stuff Brian -
It's the thought of taking turns to vomit, of keeping daily charts of hair loss and lesions, comparing our reddening skin like excited sunbathers worshipping their fiery god, of measuring our tumours how we once measured sunflowers
excellent

Brian,
Quite a quandary i find myself in. I completely enjoy reading these, excellent balance of emotion and objectivity...
And i feel a bit guilty for enjoying reading your struggle as it is so fresh.

Metaphors i have used (rather flippantly) have become your reality
and with that comes a deeper undertanding
of what tthe power of the written word- what it is and what it isn't.

Keep your head up, going forward. I will keep reading.

Suzanne
