I had felt certain, when I began this website, that I didn’t want to compartmentalize my cancer. This is a web log about my interests, opinions, life generally, and cancer looms large in all that. This cancer patient and this working artisan are one and the same person, after all.
Also I definitely don’t think having cancer should be something people should hide. It’s something to focus more light on. We need to de-stigmatize it, de-mystify it, and just generally get de-freaked-out about it.
And yet, for weeks now, I’ve been deleting posts that seem to focus on my illness too much. I think it's just too jarring and weird to write about cancer in any depth in a website that I actually intended to be mainly about my creative projects and such..
