  1. Oh no! Do I take the title seriously? I hope not. You leave me with a dark and scary image.

    • Hi Linda. Late last year I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer. I caught it early and have had radiation treatment this year. I am doing fine at this point. I’ve been debating the idea of making the experience public through my art. I have created a 9 minute video piece that I am submitting to film festivals. I may in the near future post it on my blog. Thanks for your thoughts and your concern.

      • Oh Walter, I’m so sorry to hear this. It explains why I haven’t seen you in my feed. It is an awful condition to have to deal with, frightening, inconvenient, and usually life altering in one way or another. I hope your prognosis is good and that after you’ve recovered from all the radiation and whatnot, you get back to feeling like the real you again. Keep your spirits up. Keep working at your art. Keep living.
