First of all, I want to say a great big thank-you to those of you who have sent me wonderful messages of support recently. I’ve received some beautiful comments in reply to my last blog post – and some special emails too. Reading them has meant so much to me in this difficult time, and has brought me a lot of solace… thank you so much.
I’ve now finished my chemotherapy, and I’ve got my strength back too. I’m feeling great. My hair has fallen out… and is already starting to grow back. I climbed a mountain, and I’m over the other side of it now… and I’m so happy that it’s all over. I recently holidayed with my family in Kefalonia, Greece to celebrate – we had such a beautiful time!
Whilst I am on surveillance, and need to have ongoing check-ups – the odds of the cancer returning are slim. I really couldn’t be more excited about having the chance to create again… and I feel blessed and inspired to know that you are still with me! I will post updates more regularly from now on, and I’ll have something new for you to listen to, very soon.
During my recovery period, I was listening obsessively to the soundtrack of a videogame; actually something that I was playing during the month that I uploaded my very first video to Youtube, all the way back in 2006. I still can’t get over this mesmerising soundtrack by Jeremy Soule…! Although the game’s sequel, Skyrim, has attained pretty much world domination status since it’s release – it is The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion that for me has the superior soundtrack – and just some of the most beautiful and touching themes that I’ve heard.
This music was another crutch that really helped me get through the last few months. I thought you may enjoy to hear a track which sums up how I’m feeling right now…
More soon. All the best…!
