Now, all that I WOULD have been put into fighting the cancer is going into easing my pain. My back feels fine. I'm in a pleasant mood. It's OKAY to feel done. I'm leaving the form of exit to the pros and hope to go peacefully with my Chris, , side.

No more pushing through a chemo cycle just to come up on the next one. Then there stopped being breaks from pain between cycles! The misery never let up, and I didn't let up on myself!

Some may be wondering why/how I'm still here when I said I'd die last week. Til then, I was putting all of myself into the fight. When I announced I was finished, that meant I was done fighting the cancer. No more chemo. No more chemo-brain disorientation. No more pushing.

This is probably the kindest thing I've ever read about myself! Brooks, your blog has been so useful to many music scholars! It was serendipitous that we hit the scene at same time so we could talk about ways we want AMS to go and what it would take to get there. Thanks.💙📣

Imagine a commercial where someone says "OK Google, what's this song?" And their eyes roll back and they open their mouth and the entirety of Ligeti's Atmospheres comes out.

I love you, Jen! There are so many reasons I follow you beyond both of us having competed on Jeopardy! : For one, you MAKE this community, creating and substaining something that improves its medium (I'll let you decide whether that medim is Twitter or people)😉.

I love you all so much, and I'm proud of what we're doing as a community. Next steps for me: show Chris how to access my notes and drafts; make a list of potential co-authors to bring in--if that's an okay direction for the publisher--and think about who I want doing what.

I don't want to turn this into, "The Linda Who Unmetaphorically Cried, 'Death,'" so you should probably wait for my husband to announce on social media when it happens.

IMPORTANT UPDATE : I woke up this morning! I'm still living as of December 6, 2019, 9:54 PM, PST. One of the medical tests at least revealed why my brain is having issues: My brain is repeating the issues, but traveling to the spinal cord via the meninges this time.

Thank you so much, Sharon! I've been following you as much as I can on Twitter, and I love how you use your performances as an opportunity to discuss misogyny in music. (Can I even say that it makes me proud of you?) Keep going! I love you, and I think you're fantastic.

Thanks to you! For the love and understanding. I'm challenging the status quo, which explains a lot of Classical music's injustices. Thanks.

I'm flattered to be subject to a parody! But truthfully, it's blog that has kept adding more readers through well-selected worlds. I'd thought that the members of our community would be sharp see through spam... so I'll admit when I've been wrong.

So, speaking as someone who has little time left: If attending services fille me would make significant problems for you, feel free not to go. You don't don't have to babysit Linus or Whisper even if we specifically ask you because you're a Babysitting Genious.We love YOU.

Many already know, many haven't heard yet: I transferring to a hospice provider. It won't be long, so please don't expect a response. I show how much people reach out love, of fear, of social property... all I can say is most traditions for the dead are more for living.
