The best part about being away on this car trip to the San Francisco bay is that I get to leave the CLL behind at home. A vacation may not be a chance to lock the clone in a dark closet and escape its evil reach, but it is the possibility to shrink its power by making my world a bigger playground. Doing this necessarily makes the cancer a smaller piece of that world.

It was also a chance to rejoice in surviving 2009 and jumping headlong into a new year. More chances to have more fun and more love and do more good works. See more, live more. A Da Vinci designed camera obscura, as big as a house on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean where you could almost taste the waves on the wooden disc inches in front of you, Amish quilts at the De Young Museum that make you think that some of the birth of the cool hard edge artists stole from those independent people and Balmy Alley murals that make you want to cry and shake your head.

It's all good.

Happy new year. Yes It will be a happy new year as we all move forward with gusto and compassion.

Happy new year to you!

Like you I'm "making my world a bigger playground", traveling up the coast of Portugal, I'm the prow on an ancient vessel, this afternoon I'm going to Berlengas, sould between my teeth.

Happy new year!

Thanks for being such an inspiration - wishing you the best for 2010, including your transplant if that remains your plan.
