Many thanks for the kind words and healing thoughts posted here during the last few weeks, for the cards and letters, all the lovely thoughts that popped here and into my inbox as I wrestled with cancer, underwent surgery and lurched painfully about afterwards in a complete and utter fog.
There is still a fair bit of pain, and I am not too steady on my pins at the moment, but I am tottering slowly back toward health and energy and am looking forward to being back out in the Lanark woods in a few weeks. Carrying a camera will have to wait for a while.
Any morning that starts out with freshly brewed espresso and frothed milk (three cheers for the De'Longhi Perfecta), an arty coffee stencil and a bamboo brush to finish things off is just grand, and drawing a heart in my mugga is a way of saying "thank you" to all of you. You are treasured, more than you know.
