to: dear friends and all the ships at sea,

Last Thursday, midnight, it was discovered at the ER that my cancer had outwitted my chemo and taken over my innards. I am now at home in the tender care of Hospice, with soothing drugs, for the duration which might last a month or two.

Ever in paradox, we are both quite well where being well most counts.

“It will be brief. The interim is mine.”

What a beautiful, sad, dignified note. “… where being well most counts.” So well said.

I hope that – for you and your 88-year-old boyfriend – the interim is peaceful and filled with love.
