calendula_witch heads back to San Francisco today. Our news is so much better than expected, thanks to the reprieve from chemo. Parting is tough, even though I'll see her next week. I'm still processing, furiously so in truth, and haven't quite come to the other side of it yet. Maybe I never well. And "reprieve" is the right word. Serious issues yet afoot inside me. Just not so deadly serious and urgent as before. A day for introspection, especially when my heart falls quiet a while once I have put my true love on the airplane.

There is nothing quite like the silence of love leaving. I hope the inside of your head gets less ugly with time and love.

A decade ago, I found a lump, which my hospital thought might be cancerous. I was living and working away from my OH when I heard. I empathise, I really do. All best wishes.
My lump turned out benign, months later. But I so missed the marquis when I was in that limbo.
