My dear friend Joanie won her battle with breast cancer this week. Great news in a difficult to articulate, tough to deal with sort of way. It is wonderful having friends you can count on for a laugh and a smile. Those special few who somehow just shine despite the weather. I am blessed with memories of Joanie shining brighter than ever, burning off some of that fog that settled in like pea soup, stranding me panicked scared and lost while out cruising on the Cancer Parkway. I am honored to have such a beacon shining in the here-after. Shine on girl friend.
Oh yea and that Friday evening trip down the Parkway to Velcade has left me feeling just fine. Nice place, no fog!
