Fotografia nie musi być geotagowana i nie ma innych obowiązkowych wymogów ale jeśli możecie spełnić poniższe oczekiwania to byłbym szczęśliwy: 1. Zdjęcie z tekstową stopką z informacją miejsca: miejsce, region, kraj 2. Pierwszy komentarz zawiera tagi poprzedzone oznakowaniem -  #fk...(miejsce, region, kraj) Hello World!  I'm sorry, please photos of Polish, the region - Podlasie. ((( Photography does not have to be geo tagging and there are no mandatory requirements but if you have these expectations that I would be happy: 1.  Photo of a text footer to the information space: place, region, country 2.  The first comment has preceded marking tags - # fk ... (place, region, country) Proszę o wpisy  z fk, wtedy uzbiera się strumień fotokrajowy "fk",  Chciałbym bardzo by rozpowszechniła się fotografia krajoznawcza, użytkowa na G+, by w naszych strumieniach za zdjęciem "biegła" dodatkowo informacja np co to za miejsce (stąd prośba o stopki), gdzie ten kwiat rośnie, jak się nazywa itd.  Eventy i tagi segregują nasze zbiory - łatwo wtedy poznajemy podobne np okolice, kwiaty i inne dziedziny. WAŻNE:  by nie utonąć w światowym strumieniu kategorii zachęcam cały czas by w tagowaniu stosować to "fk", wtedy nie toniemy;oczywiście obok można dopisać swój prywatny tag czy tag ogólnoświatowy. Każdą nową osobę, która zacznie tagowanie wpisów z  "fk" też będę polecał dla dobra przewagi informacji nad zalewem kotków, zajączków choć takich eventów nie wykluczam, bo wtedy też może być przednia zabawa. Dla orientacji, o jakich eventach mowa, polecam ich aktualny zestaw na stronie: www.fotokraj.com  W stopkach fotokrajowych piszmy polskie nazwy własne po  polsku, ew. tylko zamiast Polska piszmy - Poland. W tagowaniu nie stosuję polskich znaków diakrycznych (łśćńźżóąę - często stwarzają problemy) nawet jeśli to jest nazwa polska, pisanie tagów z Wielkiej litery nie ma znaczenia dla strumienia G+.

Jak wrzucamy zdjęcia do Wydarzenia:   Po kliknięciu w  nazwę Wydarzenia pojawi się konkretne Wydarzenie a w nim u góry na pomarańczowym przycisku pisze "Dodaj zdjęcie" i dalej  > "Prześlij"  dalej > "Wybierz zdjęcia z komputera" i ... to wszystko ... ale po wrzuceniu pierwszego zdjęcia przez Ciebie zapoczątkujesz u siebie taki album, jak nazwa Wydarzenia; wtedy zalecam ten sposób do każdego kolejnego zdjęcia (ale to już TwPodlasie Province, Poland - the end of the World and one day longer - pictures with tag #fk...2013-01-18 19:00:0022

Back to the tunnel of chemotherapy

86% of patients with my cancer are unlucky enough to have a positive result in the biopsy of the removed tumor (meaning: there is still cancer in the tumor that was removed). Those patients must endure a further 3 months of chemo, "just in case". (The remaining 14% test negative and need no chemo).

I am one of the unlucky majority.

So I was prepared, as much as anyone can be prepared for this ordeal of slow systematic poisoning.
Difficult moments, difficult days and nights...
It is a battle, not least against a sense of futility, that must not take root.

Heading for snow

Snow has whitened the southern French Alps, the magical transition zone between:
- the dry Mediterranean climate of the Provence Alps (more agricultural, forgotten, quiet) and
- the colder, wetter, more brutal weather conditions of the Savoie region (where most of the famous ski resorts are).

I have 10 days to surgery.

I will spend them with friends in the mountains, for the quiet, the clean air, the gleam of snow, the blue skies, the crystals sprouting out of grass blades, the frozen ponds, river banks and village water fountains.

As usual with a countdown, I will only enjoy these days if I forget it is a countdown, if I don't try to treat these days as anything special, if I don't think that "time is running out" in any sense, if I just live them more or less as ordinary days, enjoying the... more »

At the olive grove: practicality meets aesthetics

Invariably, Mediterranean earth is rocky, dry, with low fertility. For millennia, farmers cleared their fields by picking the stones and fought hard to create soil and preserve it from flash floods.

But what to do with all these stones?

You build nice, tidy walls to keep them out of your field. The walls also come handy in keeping some nasties out: goats and wild boar, for example. They can keep your donkey from eating your figs.

Thus, the labyrinths of Mediterranean dry stone walls were built through the centuries. And though many are crumbling and the art of building and repairing them is dying, there are, still, thousands of kilometers of them still standing, waiting for your footsteps to pass them by.

The olive tree: new spring growth

It is so easy to admire the olive tree for its fruit (the olive) and its juice (olive oil) that we often forget what a beautiful tree it is in its own right.

Especially in early spring, when the new bright khaki branches explode from last year's thick foliage. This one is a young one, proudly growing before a very old wall. But both olive tree and wall are exceptionally well-made and they can both easily last for another few hundred years.

I hope the same for good old Europe where new spring growth is barely visible.

INDOOR/OUTDOOR: The glory of a courtyard

Somewhere between a dining room and a picnic blanket, the courtyard is my favorite place for meals. Surrounded by walls, it is safe and cozy: the house is just there. The gravel floor gives a nice crunch to your every step. The plants are vibrant but do not overwhelm. And when the light fails, you only need to raise your head to see the stars.

Splendido!

Not all the umbrellas in the world...
... can protect Greece from its ongoing storm.

For it is self-inflicted.

Caught between mass delusion and Angela's closed wallet, the country is drifting rudderless. Ireland, Portugal, Italy, Spain and, even, Cyprus, are gradually succeeding where Greece continues to fail.

Alone and ridiculed, with no prospects, it is left like a teenager with a hangover singing "Don't cry for me Argentina", its economic model.

WILD/TAME: Leda's seducer

There is something incredibly powerful about a swan. More even than his beauty and grace, the swan dominates with his strength and confidence.

In art and mythology, he is second only to the eagle as a symbol of winged royalty. And of menace, at least to the Greeks.

For when Zeus turns into a swan to seduce Leda, the resulting offspring include Helen and Clytemnestra, not exactly the choicest pair of children in anybody's list. Black or white, the swan seduces and ruins. Keep it in mind on your next lake visit.

Snows are melting: C'est fini!

Time to pack my bags once again.  The Alps are shedding their winter purity. It is time to head back south, towards Province, towards the waking expanses of lavender.

In the Alps, this is the period of strong cold winds from the North.  Of leaf buds slowly swelling.  Of sudden cold rains, muddy days, avalanches & rock falls.  Of transformation: slippery & dangerous.

In the South, the winds will be just as strong but sweeter & more aromatic.  Intense yellow dandelion flowers will soon be covering the vineyards.  Every day will mark another milestone for Persephone: today the hawthorn, tomorrow the almond tree.

Springtime celebration...

WILD/TAME: Man's best frenemy

Just as it is hard not to sympathize with the environmentalists who mourn the scarcity of Europe's top predator, so it is with the plight of the sheep farmers who tremble at his howling.

Especially if you see what a single wolf can do to an entire flock of sheep...

WILD/TAME: "I can pull your sleigh or tear you to pieces"

In the high snowy expanses, he can be your best friend or, a few genes away, you can be his favorite meal. Having seen both, it is hard for me to not draw parallels between the enthusiastic perseverance of the sleigh dog and the cunning stubbornness of the hunting wolf.

They are the flip sides of the same character: one side works for us, the other against us. Thus, the adorable turns into the horrifying.

Never feel guilty for loving desserts

The French eat desserts with impunity while maintaining great silhouettes. And there is nothing fat-free about these desserts! Heavy cream, chocolate, butter, sugar, eggs, candied fruit, almonds, walnut oil: all the rich voluptuous goodies.

Fat has a bad rap in the USA, despite so much serious evidence to the contrary. In France, people enjoy great patisserie and stay svelte! Time to trash fat-free milk and sugar substitutes and embrace real, whole food in moderation!

Not quite "cheeky" yet...

... but getting there, gradually.

I still don't have a scale, it is just something I never had in my life.  Especially now, the idea that I would climb on a machine every day to watch a needle tell me how much weight I have gained is unappetizing.  It kind of makes me feel like a machine myself: so many calories in, so many grams retained in the body.

No way!  Instead, I rely on skin color, eye brightness and, yes!, the gradual reappearance of my cheeks!  Never before had I thought how wonderful cheeks are, what a sign of health & vibrancy & well-being, until I lost mine.

But, with all this French creamy stuff, they are slowly coming back and that is certainly something to smile about.

Why the French Alps are not the California Sierras.

What I miss here:
- the endless expanses of California
- the undiscovered wild: nature untamed, wild animals everywhere (many of them!)
- the (sometimes scary) sense that "nature is the boss here, buddy"
- California informality

What I get here instead:
- villages: uninterrupted human habitation (houses, farms, gardens) since the Middle Ages
- gastronomy: no Kellogg's!  Fresh eggs from our chickens!
- society & tradition "at village scale": no guns, no drugs, no conspiracy theorists, no fundamentalists, no loonies
- French tradition

You can't have it all!!!

Enough!  I have to run away from here

For winter is ending soon and the snows are already starting to melt in the Alps.  So despite being thin as a rail, I have to move northwards if I want to catch some of the last real snow.  In any case, I feel mended: the lavender fields have done their magic and the thick meat stews may have garnered me a couple of kilos.

Sure, there will be snowstorms through March and, even, into April.  But it is not the same thing as snowshoeing through forests piled with heavy snow established for months.

So, today, I am prying myself out of the monastery, packing snug duck-feather parkas into crammed suitcases and retracing the river back up to the high alpine ranges. 

Meanwhile, the air smells of spring, the wet southerlies are blowing, hyacinths are smiling. Please!  I am not ready for so much spring yet!   Toonoisy. ... more »

As people celebrate the end of winter, I find myself, once again, a minority.  Is anyone here with me?

The secrets of the monastery's cellar

I have been hiding away at an 11th century x-convent somewhere in Provence, amid frozen lavender fields.

You know how I love old buildings, the patina of time, stories & stories engraved on every little thing.

They tolerate my curiosity here and they let me explore everywhere I want, including the cellars.  I am like a child, once again, opening creaking doors, pushing aside cobwebs, flashlight in hand, eyes wide-open... and slightly spooked.

In one of the messiest, dustiest cellars I run into her.  I smiled and smiled.  Her sweetness, her regard.  No one seems to know how she got there, who made her.  I had to try hard not to touch.

First Anniversary

Exactly one year ago today, I was diagnosed with cancer.  On that same day, I was told that, at a minimum, I had a tough year-long fight ahead of me.  They were right.

As many of you know, I decided to go public with it right from the start, both online & in my private life: I told everyone.

I never regretted it.  I was told and expected reactions to be very variable and not to correspond, necessarily, to the level of intimacy that i felt I shared with individual people.  This means that there were some surprises on the way, from all sides:
- I experienced the incredibly soothing kindness of strangers
- I felt estranged from a few people that I had previously felt close to
- there were people that were very willing to participate who I rejected
- there were people that I sought but was rejected by

First Anniversary

Exactly one year ago today, I was diagnosed with cancer.  On that same day, I was told that, at a minimum, I had a tough year-long fight ahead of me.  They were right.

I never regretted it.  I was told and expected reactions to be very variable and not to correspond, necessarily, to the level of intimacy that i felt I shared with individual people.  This means that there were some surprises on the way, from all sides:
- I experienced the incredibly soothing kindness of strangers
- I felt estranged from a few people that I had previously felt close to
- there were people that were very willing to participate who I rejected
- there were people that I sought but was rejected by
... and everything in between.

Essentially, I found out that all the cancer cliches are correct ("cancer will redefine all your relationships" blah blah blah) but even if the facts are cliches, the way we experience them is not. And this is exactly what counts, because it is this that made the journey my own, and it is this that kept me feeling like me, rather than like another cancer casualty.

There are 3 last basic personal things that I want to share about this experience, on its first anniversary:
- never in my life have I felt a stronger need to connect with people, to be seen and to see them, deeply
- never in my life have I felt such gratitude towards people, and towards the transforming power of empathy and kindness
- "the more personal you are willing to be and the more intimate you are willing to be about the details of your own life, the more universal you are…" (in the words of Sherwin Nuland)

The future:
- I am feeling much much better and my recovery from January's surgery is practically miraculous
- The chance I will be dead from cancer within the next five years is now only 30%
- I have to be scanned every 4 months for the next 5 years to nip any metastases "in the bud"
- Every scan without a metastasis increases my chance of survival by a few percentage points until, in 5 years time, if all is clean, I become, once again, "normal" (from a cancer point of view, at least...)

Thanks to all of you that connected with me this tough year.  You know who you are.  I will never forget.

Filling up the tables again.

Like so many (recovering?) cancer patients, among other things, I have to fatten up again, and soon.  In my case, I need to gain 16kg / 35lbs.  ASAP.

This is not easy: after being so sick for so long, the very thought of food is often... well, unappetizing.  Plus, there are a myriad dietary restrictions.

So, as so often with a difficult child, I have to trick / seduce myself to eat: variety, presentation, deliciousness, friends all help.  Anything that removes the idea that you are being fattened up like an animal to the slaughter helps.

Why am I telling you this?
Because in June, I am invited to a wedding in Verona, where I have never been & whose cuisine I know nothing of.  But it represents a possible caloric opportunity for me.
So, yesterday, I ask the Verona question to old friend +LorettaSeba... more »

Because in June, I am invited to a wedding in Verona, where I have never been & whose cuisine I know nothing of.  But it represents a possible caloric opportunity for me.
So, yesterday, I ask the Verona question to old friend +Loretta Sebastiani  while we chat in this post (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AzlinBloor/posts/SkmEv6hr9j1) by +Azlin Bloor  .
And look at her fabulous reply:
"Typical dishes of Verona are the BOILED BEEF accompanied WITH PEARA',  that is a sauce made of bread crumbs, cheese, marrow, broth and black pepper. Then ... GNOCCHI, a delicious dough made with potatoes, white flour and eggs, topped with tomato sauce or with sugar and cinnamon (delicious!). PASTA AND BEANS, rustic dish, roughly plebeian devised by the imagination of the poor, always unsurpassed in the art of eating well. 
POLENTA INFASOLA is another tasty dish. Polenta is served with stewed beans. 
Then you can not forget a series of risotto. RISO AL TASTASAL that is risotto with pork meat,  RISOTTO ALL'AMARONE (rice is cooked with Amarone wine). I also remember TORTELLINI OF VALEGGIO (called Nodi d'amore) whose dough is very thin. 
SOPPRESSA is the most famous Venetian salami.  POLENTA AND BACCALA' (Polenta and salt cod ) is unmissable. 
SARDE IN SAOR ... what about sardines in sweet and sour sauce? I'm going to publish the recipe in the community!"

I love foodies+.  Thank you!!!

If I were a woodpile, on the other hand,...

I walk past village houses all the time, attentive.  I search to understand the way these people conceive of their lives, of themselves.  I observe the countless little ways they express themselves, especially through their houses and their work.

Like everyone else, this particular farmer, I imagine, piled his/her wood carefully, sheltered from the elements, solidly packed to conserve space, to stay stable and accessible.  Then one day, I imagine, in a different mood, perhaps melancholy, perhaps fanciful, giddy (who knows? we can only infer others by projecting our own selves into their acts) s/he decided to make this circle.

If I were a barn-door...

... I would have liked to be this one, in a tiny village, in Provence, France.  

Strolling around ancient buildings, admiring these simple details transports me to younger, different days, in rural Japan.

I am healing well and every small detail and act, of love and of beauty, helps.  Immeasurably.

Winter in lavender country

Most people visit the gorgeous Provence region of southern France in the summer.  The flowers, the smells, the endless sunshine, the festivals etc.

But also: the crowds! the heat!!!
I have arrived here off-season, to escape urban Marseille, on the way to the snowy alps.

And it is lovely!

Ah, the light, the light.  No tourists at all, so I can mingle with the locals who are so curious to see a stranger in their midst this time of the year.  They invite me in, after sunset, to chat by the fireplace & taste their homemade goodies in this land of plenty.

And, yes, the lavender fields stretch everywhere, silver and blue and gray, among hills covered with oak forests.
More than just the body is restored here.

Liberty: cutting off the hospital tag...

Like a bird ruffling its feathers before flight.

Tunnel of pain

This is the way I experience it: as it gets worse, different parts of me crumble away. Like a building in an earthquake: the glass windows burst out first, then the skin of the building and, gradually, one by one, the structural interior elements.

I see myself losing my smile and good cheer. Then the humor becomes dry and sarcastic and disappears altogether. There are flashes of hot anger: "why aren't they helping me?" "where are they?" "I can't believe that this is the best that can be done for pain in 2015!"

Then, the mind can't bear it anymore and it is all body - this is actually better. I get hot and sweat and grip the sheets and tense up. Sometimes my feet kick out.

And then, that resistance also goes away: I get a sense that the pain simply cannot be beaten, only endured, accepted. I turn into a still little ball and try to give myself the only things I can give: quiet, darkness, a steady deep breath, a way to calm.
Nothing has really changed in the intensity of the pain but something changes in the way I experience it. And then exhaustion sets in and I fall, gradually, into some semblance of hallucinatory sleep.

And I feel and am filled with something like gratitude.

Unquenchable

I gave up trying to sleep around 4am. The air is stale, a euphemism for smelly. The bedding is synthetic and sterile. The bed is too short, too narrow, all wrong. The machines attached to my roommate's thin arms are whirring ceaselessly, relentlessly. The dissonant blabber of endless TVs in identical rooms in all directions saddens me.

I am in a hospital room awaiting surgery - in 20 minutes.

I remember the exquisite black panther at the Hong Kong zoo: pacing back and forth in front of the bars of his cage. He couldn't know why, but he knew that it was all wrong: he simply did not want to be there, despite the easy meals, the lack of rivals, the care of the vets.

Neither do I. Hours ago, before checking-in, I felt at the top of my form: eyes bright, body humming, spirit sharp. Now I feel like a used Kleenex.

Call me spoiled, demanding. It has not been 24 hours even. Surely all this training, meditation, yoga, good life, friends, love, experience, traveling blah blah should be able to help me accept this stoically, to melt into the situation as into a beach towel on a breezy summer day.

Oops! Nothing helps. I am all suspended here, a zombie. I am antsy like the panther, craving to sprint away, into light, movement, pleasure, life, nature.

I have tasted cool spring water and my thirst cannot be quenched with bottled.

Identity. Humiliation. Anger. Conflict

Women run this hospital. Among doctors and nurses, the heart of care, women outnumber men and feminine energy dominates.

Men, however, are the overwhelming majority among the tough, indispensable, muscle-intensive hospital functions: lifting and moving patients, equipment, medical waste.

I know a lot depends on them so I watch them closely, spying on their feelings.

Edge-walking

It happens once in a while: I wake up in the middle of the night with words in my head, clear as a voice heard or text read.

Last night's message was:
- "If you want to be an acrobat, it is better if you know how to fly. But if you know how to fly, you are a bird, not an acrobat. So I start again: if you want to be an acrobat, it is better if you know how to fall."

I like these utterances of my sleeping bedhead. Like many problem-solvers, I know that solutions are often found during sleep (geek confession: during my LISP-coding days, I used to wake up with perfectly-formed recursions that always run the first time).

But these more abstract messages I savor like one does with sweet candy: moving it around the mouth to taste it from different places along its path. I try not to reach definite conclusions as to... more »

But these more abstract messages I savor like one does with sweet candy: moving it around the mouth to taste it from different places along its path. I try not to reach definite conclusions as to what they might mean: I want the sweetness to last.

"Acrobat" comes from the Greek for "edge-walker". Yes, I like edges & joints, places where things meet other things, where things become other things. Yes, I like the idea of flying (who doesn't?) but flying is not a human ability and it contains an aspect of dying.

And when I think of falling, I always remember finding out in a dojo in Tokyo that it is the most essential part of Aikido training: you can't stand right of you don't know how to fall.

As it dissolves, the candy spreads is sweetness, but I am in no hurry.

Failing light

On the way, as the sun reaches the mountain crests that will soon obscure it, I stop the car next to an old country trail, to stretch my limbs, to stretch the return.

There are no straight lines here. Everything curves.

The tree line follows the stone wall, which follows the gravel path, which follows the base of the cliff, which is never straight. The tree branches grow to follow the light, which follows the movement of the sun, an arc in the sky.

As the light fails, the shadows lengthen and, themselves following the enchanted, ancient country landscape, curve and twist along with it.

I turn away from this last caress of the cold winter light and get straight back to the car.

Along with the trout

In the mountains, trails & roads follow rivers.  Water licks the rock to smooth its passing.  Then man carves it further for his own river of gravel and asphalt, to carry humans, horses, carts, cars, lorries.

At times, the river goes under, leaving a dry rocky bed, only to emerge lower, later.  
At times, the human river does the same: it pierces the rock and, suddenly, we are underground, the tunnel's lights flickering across the dark windshield.

Then the car emerges from the tunnel, my eyes flicker at the bright, and I think how I am rolling down the mountain along with the trout, right next to me.

Leaving

There is a melancholy in leaving a place, regardless of what is to come next.
Or is it  just me?

I remember, as a child, the car ride from the beach, at the end of summer, to the city, to school.  I could barely breathe, I felt that suspended.  Now I think: perhaps, there was something in me that sensed the preciousness of these childhood summers, that felt their uniqueness, their unrepeatability.

(So that my parents' "We will be back in June, before you know it" was no consolation.  I wanted this summer, not the next one).

As the childhood beach fades away, as today's snowy chalet disappears from the rear-view window, what am I doing looking back?

Quiet spaces

There is nothing like the muffled quiet of a snowy day.  
All is absorbed: sound & color.

A ray of weak light penetrates a clearing in the thick forest and the conifer buds have a party: we are here, we are alive, full of potential, biding our time to emerge.  I stand absolutely still, absorbing the quiet, being absorbed by the quiet.

It comforts me, as I prepare to leave the mountains, all this stillness and quiet.  As much seduction as sedative.  I hope to carry some of it along, on the way to the coast.

Heading for snow

Snow has whitened the southern French Alps, the magical transition zone between:
- the dry Mediterranean climate of the Provence Alps (more agricultural, forgotten, quiet) and
- the colder, wetter, more brutal weather conditions of the Savoie region (where most of the famous ski resorts are).

I have 10 days to surgery.

I will spend them with friends in the mountains, for the quiet, the clean air, the gleam of snow, the blue skies, the crystals sprouting out of grass blades, the frozen ponds, river banks and village water fountains.

As usual with a countdown, I will only enjoy these days if I forget it is a countdown, if I don't try to treat these days as anything special, if I don't think that "time is running out" in any sense, if I just live them more or less as ordinary days, enjoying the... more »

France becomes a battlefield /  "Charlie, not Cheney"

Is this to be France's "September 11"?

Will violence meet with violence?
Will darker forces emerge & consolidate as a response from both sides?
What will be lost in the process? / What can be gained?

What is at stake is clear:
- Whether the idea & ideals of Europe (& "the West") are powerful enough, loved enough, respected enough to survive this particular tragedy.
- Regardless of the consequences.

The people who died at Charlie clearly thought it possible. So do I.

Bad luck

Kind of like running into a bear in the forest, cancer is now "officially" caused by bad luck*.

This is just fine with me (not because I intend to spend the rest of my life wandering around Australian beaches without sunscreen,  an unfiltered Camels hanging from my lower lip) but because it lessens the paranoia that any recovering cancer patient feels: 

- will IT come back if I stay up late? 
- if I take lots of flights? 
- if I visit Beijing?
- if I eat less fiber?

So: Phewww!

(I like this scary painting from the Fine Arts Museum in Marseille, a sanctuary for me when the icy mountain winds blow through the city in the winter).

Thank you for the sweetness... and the sweets

During the holidays, boxes of sweets started arriving almost faster than I could eat them! (Sweets are the only thing I can reliably eat during this period of my recovery - and they help me gain precious weight).

My favorites:
- macaroons from Paris ("Gerard Mulot")
- stuffed prunes in bitter cocoa from Athens ("Aristokratikon")
- bourbon-filled truffles from Kentucky ("Sharp's Candies")
- dark-chocolate cigarillos from Thessaloniki ("Terkenlis")
- mastiha-flavored loukoums from London ("mastihashop.com")

Lovely French neighbors and friends kept bringing over home-made cookies and pies and cakes and apple sauces and marmalades... an endless cornucopia of the sweet delights of friendship.

And at least 47 of you (at last count) offered to send me food & gifts & toys & books & puzzles. (As I explained in my replies to you, it is just too complicated, during this fragile period, to accept gifts from anyone I don't know directly and does not know my numerous dreadful dietary limitations).

But THANK YOU, THANK YOU, your offers also helped make these holidays warmer and sweeter.

Blue Is the Warmest Colour: Part 2

What does this post have to do with the new James Bond movie?

As I have said earlier we are having an unseasonally warm winter in Europe & the colors are splendid.  Tree buds are swelling & taking on color, which gives naked forests a deep red hue, beautiful against the blue of the icy slopes.  (If this goes on & buds actually burst, this will be a disaster for the trees when temperatures drop: kind of like visiting Chicago in January with a linen outfit).

During cold nights in the cities, just like everyone/everywhere else, the French go to the movies (surprised?) & often invite me along (as I am no longer much fun in a bar or at a club, or, even, at a restaurant).  This is how it came to pass that I watched: "*Blue Is the Warmest Colour*" (in French: "La vied&... more »

As I have said earlier we are having an unseasonally warm winter in Europe & the colors are splendid.  Tree buds are swelling & taking on color, which gives naked forests a deep red hue, beautiful against the blue of the icy slopes.  (If this goes on & buds actually burst, this will be a disaster for the trees when temperatures drop: kind of like visiting Chicago in January with a linen outfit).

During cold nights in the cities, just like everyone/everywhere else, the French go to the movies (surprised?) & often invite me along (as I am no longer much fun in a bar or at a club, or, even, at a restaurant).  This is how it came to pass that I watched: "*Blue Is the Warmest Colour*" (in French: "La vie d'Adèle"), which I highly recommend unless you are homophobic and/or offended by explicit sex on screen (even IMDB gives it 7.9 stars).

And 007?  
Well, one of Blue's splendid co-star/lovers, the very very French Léa Seydoux is one of the (two) new Bond girls (the other is the very very Italian Monica Bellucci).

And as a special bonus for me (& other fools like me who like big books), in the Bond film she goes by the name Madeleine Swann.  What more can I ask for?

Warning: 
Blue Is the Warmest Colour is long, explicit & "European".  If you are not into that sort of thing, I am sure there is a Tom Cruise movie just around the corner.

Rugged, but still kicking...

... I have headed to the mountains.
Carrying a messenger bag with the chemotherapy pump (till Christmas eve) around Alpine villages, I can pass for a rural postman.
It has been a super-mild autumn in France & most of Europe. Primroses are blooming as high as 1000m.  The cold, dry, sunny conditions suit me fine:  the risk of bacterial or viral infection is minimal, so I can wander outside and even mingle in crowds with little fear of taxing my weak immunity.

All things considered, I am in excellent spirits and wish the same to you and yours.  And thank you.

Blue Is the Warmest Colour

My mind, never quite linear, is now, after months of cancer treatment, even more "all over the place" than usual (in French: "n'importe quoi").

I refuse to reign me in.

In principle, like everyone facing a life-threatening situation, I have been in a prolonged "state of shock" and, therefore, not quite "all there".

Part of me experiences this as a lack of trust in my faculties (was I rude? did I leave the lights on? did I fly my button?)

But part of me finds this freeing!  There is a freedom in becoming a bit spacey, error-prone, soft-in-the-head, clumsy, foolish, forgetful, rambling.  And it is easier to be that way in rural France than in techy Palo Alto.

What exactly did I set out to write to you under Blue Is the Warmest Colour, with a photo of icy-blue snow next to warm autumn foliage?

I'll get back to it when I remember...

Last one

I feel like some kind of skinny furry animal coming out of his hibernation hole.  
Bleary-eyed, uneasy on my feet, scratching my head, I march towards the blinding light.  To realize, with swelling joy and trembling chest THAT I HAVE ONLY 1 (ONE) CHEMO LEFT!!!

And if that is not enough good news to make me smile again, then nothing is.

On December 22:
- I will go to the hospital with my latest blood tests
- The oncologist will consult the tests & talk to me & determine the dosage
- They will drip the medicine, for 2 hours, that will cover the effects of the chemo so I don't get immediately violently sick
- And, then, they will connect me to the electronic "biberon" (french for "baby bottle") that will slowly (for 48 hours) drip my final dose of the chemo poison (too toxic to administer moreq... more »

Thus, therefore and consequently, unless I have my facts wrong, unless I am hallucinating all this or I am in some sort of denial or the doctors are lying to me: on 24 December, 3pm (Paris time) I will be disconnected from the chemo & I can go have Christmas dinner.

There, I said it, I keep on saying it so I can believe it.

The Dream of the Empty Table

I dream of empty tables, without food.  In these dreams, I am seated around friends, in excellent spirits: we talk, we jest, we expound and laugh, all around the table without a single morsel of food in the empty plates, serving bowls, soup tureens.  Without a single morsel of food passing through our lips.

After years of being supportive to people struggling to lose weight, I am full of newly-gained compassion & affinity with those trying to gain weight.

Because I am of them now.

For the first time in my life, I can no longer say "I love food".  In fact, I am trying very very hard, not to allow the opposite phrase to take hold of my brain (& stomach).  

I am no longer at a danger point due to low weight but I am certainly not the fatted calf.  After surgery, I stuffedmyse... more »

I am no longer at a danger point due to low weight but I am certainly not the fatted calf.  After surgery, I stuffed myself with the most terrifying high-cholesterol diet you can imagine: meats, fats, creams, desserts, sugars, starches, bone marrow, chocolate mousse etc etc etc  (And all this cannot be balanced by fiber, vegetables & fruits, because I cannot digest them).

It worked!  Slowly, horribly, shovel after shovel, I gained back 4 kg (9 lbs).  But I still have 12 kg (26 lbs) to gain before I get to pre-cancer levels.  Yuck!  (When they hear this, my friends in France reply: "Can I give you some of mine?)

I have as much enthusiasm for the dinner chair, as for that of the dentist.  My best wishes to all of you out there that share in the same struggle: eating with no appetite...

Back to the tunnel of chemotherapy

86% of patients with my cancer are unlucky enough to have a positive result in the biopsy of the removed tumor (meaning: there is still cancer in the tumor that was removed). Those patients must endure a further 3 months of chemo, "just in case". (The remaining 14% test negative and need no chemo).

I am one of the unlucky majority.

So I was prepared, as much as anyone can be prepared for this ordeal of slow systematic poisoning.
Difficult moments, difficult days and nights...
It is a battle, not least against a sense of futility, that must not take root.

This won't hurt a bit: 21 times

For 3 weeks after surgery I needed to have a daily shot of some anti-coagulant (= a chemical that prevents the blood from forming clots which, after surgery, can be dangerous).

I had two choices:
- have someone give me the shot
- do it myself

I opted for the latter, this being a subcutaneous injection (= into the fat layer between skin & muscle; as with insulin shots for diabetics).

I did it, but it was slightly freaky, especially since, at 64kg, finding "the fat layer" is not trivial.

Have you ever given yourself a shot?  Would you?

(PS It has been 6 weeks since surgery and I am just rediscovering my bearings)

Pain-killer

Waking up after surgery is supposed to be, for days, debilitatingly painful. France, thankfully, has a zero pain policy, so I will be connected to a morphine pump: every time the pain mounts to intolerable, I will give it a little squeeze & morphine will drip straight into my veins.

Perhaps this will prove to be even... enjoyable? (Dream on, nomad).

If all goes well, I will be out of the hospital around September 10. It will take another two months until I can move around freely again (and there will be other, smaller operations, during that time).

(When I first posted today, I noticed that my last post was almost 2 months old!!! I had thought it only 3 weeks! Time flies - I hope the next 2 months will fly by even faster... )

Time for the knife: Surgery

(There are times in life when there are so many things to worry about, so many imponderables, that it is best not to worry about them at all.)

I will be wheeled in for cancer surgery Tuesday morning (2 September). I was told to go "with just my clothes on", because the hospital is worried about thefts during my subsequent 48 hours or so in the ICU. Arriving without luggage, wallet or smartphone, like everything else about surgery, is both scary &, oddly, liberating.

It is one of life's ultimate surrenders: you just lie down naked, they put you to a sleep deep enough to death's door, they open you up. No participation, no negotiation, no control.

Am I ready? Yes - for there is no choice but to be ready.

The bald and the blond
Bodies: Part 3
(magazine selection at French cancer hospital waiting room)

I could not resist sharing with you the lovely absurdity of this spectacle:

- every day, I pass a couple of hours at a waiting room (with a women to men ratio of 3:1) where women at various stages of baldness, emaciation & general decrepitude are leafing through magazines where supermodels give them their age-old wisdom about life's essentials:

- tanning
- losing weight
- cellulite
- his erections / Viagra
- etc

Ah, the mysterious depths of human nature...


PS no guy magazines at all. We are spared!

4th of July in France

The French are stocking up on American delicacies for this weekend's festivities.
Along with the usual Sneakers and Mars, they also have their own brand of American gastronomy: McEnnedy.
Emblazoned with Lady Liberty & "American Way", the food line features several American gourmet classics (see photo).
Perhaps it is time to forgive the French for their reluctance to join the Middle East glories of Obama's predecessors?

Happy 4th of July, everyone.

Does medical marijuana help with the side-effects of cancer treatment?

My California friends are adamant that, by being treated in France, I miss out on this "essential source of relief" from the hellfire of cancer therapy.

I am told that medical marijuana:
- is a great all around analgesic
- it suppresses nausea
- it calms the digestive system overall
- it increases appetite

Is it being prescribed to cancer patients?
Does anyone have some experience with this?
What about is own negative side effects?

(I refuse to Google this & find 1 trillion conflicting results).

How many Marseillais does it take to hang an art installation?
Bodies: Part 2

- Answer: "The more the merrier"

You see it all over the city: people here like to be with other people.
Even with crowds, even congested and, especially, when you can get to invade each other's "private space" (which, like in most of the south, extends to only about 1mm away from your skin).

At times, especially in public transport, it seems to me that people actually want to get close enough to get a generous whiff of each others' body parts!

A zen solution to the French Shopping Mall problem
Honey, we shrunk Dimitri: Part 5

Thankfully, Marseille has a newly-opened Uniqlo, the Japanese retailer that is my go-to place for basic clothes. Packed with linen pants, linen shirts & T's, for a few hours, I left (mentally) hospital & city behind for the hushed tones of the land of the rising sun.

To top it all, I had a little sushi for lunch: you can see me leaning forward to catch my bald pate in the mirror of the sushi counter. First bald selfie...

Now I look trim once again & no one mistakes me for a vagabond!
