Currie's Gratitude 24 August 2014

If you make art, people will talk about it. Some of the things they say will be nice, some won’t. You’ll already have made that art, and when they’re talking about the last thing you did, you should already be making the next thing.
If bad reviews (of whatever kind) upset you, just don’t read them. It’s not like you’ve signed an agreement with the person buying the book to exchange your book for their opinion.
Do whatever you have to do to keep making art. I know people who love bad reviews, because it means they’ve made something happen and made people talk; I know people who have never read any of their reviews. It’s their call. You get on with making art.  
[Neil Gaiman]

I wonder somedays what I DO what I DO for. I think I understand myself, but oftener than NOT I am clueless without benefit of perspective.

Falling Friday, on top of already feeling like feeling crappy will never stop, it’s NOT done wonders for my capacity to find the JOY in all this.

Nothing feels like it fits me. Nothing.

I feel like I have been transformed into someone I don’t know or mayBE just someone who is strange to me.

Might BE it will all pass in a blink.

I hope.

I love you, Currie

I agree with Carol. This too shall pass.
Chemo can cause all kinds of reactions and side effects that won't stay with you once you are done with it and your body has a chance to heal from the experience. Hang in there. *hugs*
