Undoing the needle.

The Bottle Ritual.

Session 12 is over.

Look, ma, no bottles! A pirate abides, though.

My (step)mother brought me a gift, her project from surgery through chemo.

calendula_witch and shelly_rae.


Me and me, immediately post-unhooking.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

In the first photo, that's a PILLOW behind your head...I thought at first it was a big, poofy hat. Ha!

Love your expression in the last photo -- you look relieved and at peace.

Remember the Jay Lake Tumor Memorial Statue? I was just walking home from the train station, and discovered it has been removed.

Subject: Jay, you are amazing...
You are so rich with a family that loves you and friends who cherish you. I've mostly lurked and felt I would be intruding. But your battles are such an example to me. Puts everything into focus so I can concentrate on what and who are really important. Thank you, thank you. My best thoughts are for you.
