I know things have been quiet lately. I’ve been quiet lately. Quietly running. Quietly working. Quietly living. Quietly realizing sad, sad things.

The cancer is strong. I’m scared it’s winning.
I can’t really say more than that right now. I’m tired. Maybe numb. I’m working on finding my hope.
I just wanted you to know I’m here. And also, I want to ask for your good thoughts. Because we need them badly right now.
Fucking cancer, y’all.
PS: If you’ve emailed me (through whatever forum), know I received it, read it, appreciated it SO much, and will respond eventually. I just don’t have any words right now, really.
(And confidential to my anonymous reader/emailer, I don’t think you’re a creeper at all. Your note made me smile. Thank you.)
