Well, I really have nothing importants to say...
I found out this week I have cancer.

I've been diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma

I'm not looking for anything like starting a kickstarter or go fund me. I just wanted to tell everybody that you are a big part of my life. Listening to stories of people getting tangled in their underwear over relationships that had no real credence, and people jumping into the thread to keep the conversation going strong.

I guess that's not fair, some of the initial thread conversations may have had positive results but they were rare.

The best thing was all the great music I was exposed to on this board. Music that touched my heart. Gave me the courage find other music that moved me.

Pieces that moved me, led me to follow a thread of producers which more times than not led to new "gold".

So, in closing, I hope your memories of me are happy ones, and that I touched you in a manner similar to the way you guys enriched my life.

I am comfortable and accepting of my condition. Don't feel sorry for me, I am in good hands.

My advice to you, in times of discontent recognize that it is simply self centered fear, and then focus your energy on people who haven't figured it out yet and help them come the same realization.

Lastly, on a daily basis, if you are blessed enough to have a partner, grab them and hug them as if you would never let go. If you have let them down in the recent past, acknowledge it, and mean it. Ask them how you can make it up to them.
If things are great between the two of you tell them how happy that makes you and that you will do your best to try to make it last, but you realize there will be times you fall short, and you might not realize it, but give your partner permission to call you on it. beg them not to let your oversight fester.

God I'm rambling, its late and I am tired.

I'll finish again with this, I love all of you and you have brought me great joy. I hope in some way I touched you. It doesn't have to be a nice thought you have for me, an honest effect is just as meaningful, as long as its honest.

With great love, Blair
