Heather H. says: &quotI knitted [Pat] a red chemo cap, and in exchange, she promised to let me wear her fake boob on my head. What a wonderful sense of humor.&quot

Heather also shares the following letter she received in January 2006 from Pat concerning the hat, amongst other things. (&quotToilet-Moose in the letter is a reference to the horrible unearthly moaning and gurgling sounds our commode made at Simucon 2002.&quot)

How to inform you that I’ve been writing this letter because I got your fantastic present?

Effectively, at any rate, I have, over and more than in my head, asking yourself when I could put it to (virtual) paper, and I guess I’ve run out of time to ponder it. Except let me point out that I had to ask Heather A if you had actually, Actually called when I was in the hospital….grin I was kinda out of it.

Anyway! Let me begin at the starting. I located a lump — oh, say five or six months ago. I’d had a cyst in that basic location, so I wasn’t really panicked, and in fact, I was capable to shove all my misgivings into one particular little mental room and close the door for quite a bit. Lastly Heather A and I made a pact concerning doctor appointments. Lo and behold, the &quotcyst&quot couldn’t be aspirated. That was on a Thursday. On Tuesday I was at the radiologist for what turned out to be two mammograms, an ultrasound, and an ultrasound-guided biopsy. They knew in their hearts before I walked out the door that day — so did I, genuinely — but they confirmed it to me when I went back the next day for a recheck of the biopsy web site.

Okay, so cry for 18 hours, near nonstop. Just stare at the solitaire game on the computer and cry, without thought, only with tears. Then I talked to my boss (who is wonderful) the subsequent day, and she reminded me that individuals do not die from breast cancer. From all kinds of metastases, yes, from other illnesses, from old age, but not from breast cancer. That calmed me down to where I could truly feel once again. It wasn’t a death sentence any more.

I had a auto accident that weekend — thank all gods for insurance coverage! It was more than 00 damage to my car and my ego, ’cause it was my fault.

I had a surgeon appt the subsequent Tuesday afternoon. He confirmed that I required surgery, outlined my options and time frames, etc. Whilst I was there with him, my boss attempted to contact twice on my cell telephone — another excellent buddy at perform had just discovered a huge lump in HER breast! It feels like an epidemic, I will tell ya! Anyway, I took the next weekend to ponder what I actually wanted to do in the matter of how significantly tissue to take off, and then I utilized individuals I knew (pays to know people) to bump the surgery up before Christmas. My people came up from Florida, bless ’em, and I had a total mastectomy on the left. It offends my sense of order to be so lopsided, even though I typically appreciate assymetry more than its evenhanded counterpart, and I remember attempting to see under the covers and bandages correct following surgery. I also keep in mind later that evening, falling asleep in midbite over my supper, more than and more than and more than again. It would! have been laughable had anyone else observed it. g After I woke with water in my mouth, mid-drink!

I was back to work portion-time soon after a week, full-time the next week soon after that. The scar is hugely ugly, of course, and my sensibilities are nevertheless offended. However, I have plans down the road to have a large-ass tattoo on that side of my chest, and a couple of the MD people have stated they want portion of the same tattoo on ankles or shoulders or what ever. Good help group, huh?

I started chemo final week Thursday. I have four treatments, each other week, of Adriamycin and Cytoxan, cancer-killers of reknown. Renown? Hmmm. Then I commence weekly treatment options occasions 4 with Taxol, one more cancer-killer, and Herception, a monoclonal antibody for folks with the HER2 gene. (Never ask ‘less you really want to know! I’ve learned a lot.) The Herceptin will be weekly for an entire year, but at least its side-effects are couple of and far amongst. As for the other stuff, I was a single of the fortunate people who suffered little to no side-effects. No genuine nausea (even though I admit I was forehanded with the anti-nausea pills), slept for two days, totally HATED coming down from the steroids for a day, and lost five pounds from lack of appetite. Now I am 25% accomplished with this phase! Yayay!

I’m in a study, also, on the effects of a couple of issues on the stress of chemotherapy in early-stage breast cancer. (Mine’s a Stage II — large tumor, but no apparent lymph node involvement or metastases.) The arm of the study I am in makes use of spiritual growth to battle pressure and possibly even recurrence. They’ve already carried out this study for HIV/AIDS sufferers with surprisingly good benefits, they say. I figured I could not drop — one particular arm was Tai Chi, one particular spirituality, and the manage does practically nothing. See? My sofa loves me! I could have watched Television for ten weeks instead!

…and that brings me to your gift, which came prior to I began chemo. I have to take issue with the &quotToilet-Moose&quot appellation — what is my mailman supposed to feel?!? But it created me laugh, I admit it freely! I chuckled the complete time I was opening the package. Locating the tiny labyrinth created me gasp, truly. It was such a … such a great surprise! Labyrinths are a spiritual knowledge for me, and it touched me extremely deeply that you would have remembered my interest in them. I had massive ol’ belly-shaking sobs, Heather. I hadn’t cried much considering that the first shock of getting diagnosed with breast cancer, but let me tell you, I created up for lost time that night. It has been a humbling factor from the commence to understand how several people care and would help if I could only discover approaches for them to do so, and to accept it when I want it (which is probably much more frequently than I will admit — ladies are such independent cusses, and I am ! a excellent example!). Your gift and your card brought me face to face with that in a way I had managed to stay away from to that point. Did you know you sent huge hugs with it? I got ’em all.

Please do not feel undesirable about producing me cry! It was cathartic, and I necessary it. I nonetheless require it now and then. (…now becoming an operative word these days, I reckon.) (It does not spend to run out of anti-depressives two days ago!) That tiny labyrinth went with me to chemotherapy, and when I was beside myself with anxiety and near tears with fright, I &quotwalked&quot it with my fingers to calm myself, over and more than and more than, till I swear the grooves are deeper now. It’ll go with me each time. Out of all the kindnesses I have received in the past few months, that is the one that is dearest to me. I can’t thank you adequate.

I took Thursday (chemoday) and Friday off operate to sleep, and I was back at the salt mine on Monday for most of the day, yesterday for most of the day, and right now for it all. Chemo is subsequent week again, and it is normally even much better the second time. I anticipate to drop my hair appropriate about that time, as well. I have a wig ordered and will be scheduling the appointment to get my head shaved and the wig trimmed to suit me for subsequent week. I am not going to wait for this damn disease to dictate THAT small piece of my life, at any rate. I must be basically GAW-geous bald!

I laugh at every single chance, and me becoming me, I locate lots of them :) That is the way I choose to face life, after all. I walked into the oncologist’s workplace the first time for my chemo-preparing, and I announced to her that I program to die of old age — she laughed. I have ladies treating me, except for the surgeon, and he truly delegates a lot to a female nurse-practitioner who is also a licensed psychologist and is wonderful. (I actually typed &quotremale&quot first — is that a sex-changed guy with second thoughts?) I really like ladies, I’ve decided more and much more strongly. Men are all appropriate in their location g, but females are sustaining creatures and see the require for sharing like a lot of guys don’t. No, my sexual leanings are not changing! Like I said, males are all proper in their spot…hummmmm

This would be a purrfect spot to segue into my thoughts on relationships and friendships, but I genuinely do require to go to perform right now sometime. duck Perhaps that will be an additional book in your emailbox one of these days? Just let me inform you 1 other factor. The laughs we have shared are really a single of the high points of my life. We had such innocent and rich Exciting.

Okay. Let me go mop my face and discover one thing to put on. I am glad I ultimately have this written! Now I can laugh with you again, I believe.

Peace and health to you and yours, lady! I want Emily updates 1 of these days, please! I really like your Emily-tales.

Really like,
~Pat ^..^

Adorned (Muria 13)

——————————————————————————————————-

Speaking of hair… Muria ladies in general and motiari in certain enjoy to dress up. In this they are clearly discernable from non-tribal ladies or women of other tribes when walking in the streets. Muria girls wear colourful cloth, bangles, anklets, necklaces and most prominently lots of fancy adornments in their hair. Everything decorative will discover a spot in the pinned up black strands as with this lady whom I photographed on her way to the weekly market place of Narayanpur town.

Of particular significance, however, are the combs they put on. Effectively, today most of what you see are low cost and shiny plastic combs. But in old occasions those combs were carved from wood by the chelik who would provide them to their favourite motiari. To put on many combs in her hair utilized to be a trigger of particular pride to every Muria girl…

As with other tribal men and women the Muria women, too, put on tatoos on faces, shoulders, arms and other parts of the physique They, nevertheless, are not only regarded as beauty marks but bear a spiritual significance as well.

Generating them is rather painful and I bear in mind Elwin relating a quantity of myths explaining why it had to be carried out. One of them – which stuck to my mind for obvious causes I guess – explains tattooing as a kind of penance for primordial girls who then had their vaginas equipped with… teeth. ‘Vagina dentata’ is in fact a myth not uncommon in Asia – and not unknown in our portion of the world either – Sigmund Freud talks about it within the context of worry of castration in his Psychoanalytic theory.

A remark about approach: this is no collage but i mirrored the background of that quite image.

Personal Quotes
On Donatella Versace: She’s iconic and powerful, yet people throw darts at her. She’s definitely provocative.

Some artists are working to buy the mansion or whatever the element of fame must bear, but I spend all my money on my show.

I was the arty girl, the theatre chick. I dressed differently and I came from a different social class from the other girls. I was more of an average schoolgirl with a cork.

On her style: My grandmother is basically blind, but she can make out the lighter parts, like my skin and hair. She says, "I can see you, because you have no pants on." So I’ll continue to wear no pants so that my grandma can see me.

You must never ever let a guy know how much you like him, because then he’ll run in the other direction … Well, I just sign that when you don’t play hard to get, if you’re too easy or you come off too eager, they run away so you gotta keep your pokerface on.

I love Dolce & Gabbana. I love Versace. I love the crazy, more eccentric stuff. I can’t pay my rent, but I’m f—ing gorgeous.

I dropped out of NYU, moved out of my parent’s house, got my own place, and survived on my own. I made music and worked my way from the bottom up. I didn’t know somebody, who knew somebody, who knew somebody. If I have any advice to anybody, it’s to just do it yourself, and don’t waste time trying to get a favor.

Writing a record is like dating a few men at once. You take them to the same restaurants to see if they measure up, and at some point you decide who you like best. When you make music or write or create, it’s really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you’re writing about at the time.

My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn’t think the photos were commercial enough… In my opinion, the last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.

[on Britney Spears] Britney’s a real class act in terms of the way she handles herself in the media and embraces new artists. She’s always really kind, I’ve always admired that about her.

[on Britney Spears] It was awesome seeing the song change when she put her touches on it. I’m just really grateful that she loves the music and she’s so supportive of me. She’s a fan of my stuff and to write a song that she loves and to know she loves me as an artist, you can’t ask for anything better than that.

[on Britney Spears] She’s gonna kick everybody’s ass. She’s awesome, as far as I’m concerned Britney never left.

[on writing the song Quicksand for Britney Spears] She was very sweet and she was very excited to do this song. It’s an honor to do anything for Britney Spears – she is such an iconic pop figure for my generation.

I am not sexy in the way that Britney Spears is sexy – which is a compliment to her because she’s deliciously good-looking.

[on writing songs for Britney Spears] She’s a nice girl – I just feel very honored that she wanted to sing my song. I used to scream for her in Times Square and now I work for her. When I was 13 she was the most provocative performer of my time. I love her so much!

[on Britney Spears] Britney certainly doesn’t need any freaking tips from me! Britney Spears is the queen of pop. I was learning from her.

I would rather die than have my fans not see me in a pair of high heels. I’d never give up my wigs or hats for anything. You see legendary people taking out their trash, I think it’s destroying show business.

[about her experience at school] I had a very big nose, very curly brown hair and I was overweight. I got made fun of.

Pop music will never be low brow.

[on how to be glamorous for a photo shoot] Just look straight into that lens and be yourself.

Be yourself and love who you are and be proud. Because you were born this way baby.

People assume that when I’m off stage I transform back into someone else. But I truly believe in the glamorous lifestyle that I present to the outside world. I love glamor. A glamorous life is quite different to a life of luxury. I don’t need luxury. For years I was practically broke but I was still vain and glamorous.

[on Freddie Mercury]: Freddie was unique – one of the biggest personalities in the whole of pop music.

Everywhere I go a Gaga fairy has been there before me and left a cupboard full of wonderful clothes that I’m allowed to borrow and wear. When I move on to the next city, the next cupboard is waiting. I haven’t been shopping myself for over a year now.

She is the queen, Madonna is the queen. I have so much adoration for her. Being compared to her is unbelievably flattering, but in truth there is no one that can compare with Madonna. She is the queen!

First thing in the morning, try to think compassionate thoughts about yourself for five minutes. I don’t always do it, but I try to.

[on sleeping with her makeup still on] I’ve got to wash my face at some point. I do get laughed at quite a bit by all my friends because they say I go to sleep a lot with my make-up on. But I say that I have to be ready for the men in my dreams!

They’d say, ‘Why do you do your make-up like that, what’s with your eyebrows?’ I used to do these really big Evita brows. I used to self-tan, and I had this really intense tan in school, and people would say, ‘Why the fuck are you so orange, why do you do your hair that way, are you a dyke?’ I used to be called a slut… I didn’t even want to go to school sometimes.

Skeleton and hats!

The skeleton is to do with the big Day of the Dead festivals on November 2nd.

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a holiday celebrated by numerous in Mexico and by some Mexican Americans living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of loved ones and close friends to pray for and don’t forget pals and family members who have died. The celebration happens on November 2 in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the vacation incorporate constructing private altars honoring the deceased making use of sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. The Day of the Dead is a time of celebration when eating and partying are common. Due to occurring shortly after Halloween, the Day of the Dead is often believed to be a similar holiday, even though the two are celebrated differently.

Scholars trace the origins of the contemporary vacation to indigenous observances dating back thousands of years and to an Aztec festival committed to a goddess called Mictecacihuatl. In Brazil, Dia de Finados is a public vacation that a lot of Brazilians celebrate by visiting cemeteries and churches. In Spain, there are festivals and parades, and, at the finish of the day, individuals collect at cemeteries and pray for their dead loved ones. Similar observances happen elsewhere in Europe, and similarly themed celebrations appear in several Asian and African cultures.

The Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico can be traced back to the indigenous cultures. Rituals celebrating the deaths of ancestors have been observed by these civilizations perhaps for as lengthy as two,500–3,000 years. In the pre-Hispanic era, it was frequent to preserve skulls as trophies and show them in the course of the rituals to symbolize death and rebirth.

The festival that became the modern day Day of the Dead fell in the ninth month of the Aztec calendar, about the starting of August, and was celebrated for an complete month. The festivities have been committed to the god recognized as the &quotLady of the Dead&quot, corresponding to the contemporary Catrina.
In most regions of Mexico, November 1 honors youngsters and infants, whereas deceased adults are honored on November two. This is indicated by normally referring to November 1 mostly as Día de los Inocentes (&quotDay of the Innocents&quot) but also as Día de los Angelitos (&quotDay of the Small Angels&quot) and November 2 as Día de los Muertos or Día de los Difuntos (&quotDay of the Dead&quot).

Folks go to cemeteries to be with the souls of the departed and build private altars containing the favourite foods and beverages as well as pictures and memorabilia of the departed. The intent is to encourage visits by the souls, so that the souls will hear the prayers and the comments of the living directed to them. Celebrations can take a humorous tone, as celebrants remember funny events and anecdotes about the departed.

Plans for the day are made all through the year, which includes gathering the goods to be supplied to the dead. During the three-day period, families generally clean and decorate graves most pay a visit to the cemeteries exactly where their loved ones are buried and decorate their graves with ofrendas (&quotofferings&quot), which usually include orange mexican marigolds (Tagetes erecta) named cempasúchitl (initially named cempoalxochitl, Nahuatl for &quottwenty flowers&quot).

In contemporary Mexico, this name is occasionally replaced with the term Flor de Muerto (&quotFlower of the Dead&quot). These flowers are thought to attract souls of the dead to the offerings.

Toys are brought for dead children (los angelitos, or &quotthe small angels&quot), and bottles of tequila, mezcal or pulque or jars of atole for adults. Families will also offer you trinkets or the deceased’s preferred candies on the grave. Ofrendas are also place in properties, generally with foods such as candied pumpkin, pan de muerto (&quotbread of the dead&quot), and sugar skulls and beverages such as atole. The ofrendas are left out in the homes as a welcoming gesture for the deceased. Some folks think the spirits of the dead eat the &quotspiritual essence&quot of the ofrendas meals, so even even though the celebrators eat the food after the festivities, they think it lacks nutritional value. Pillows and blankets are left out so that the deceased can rest following their extended journey. In some parts of Mexico, such as the towns of Mixquic, Pátzcuaro and Janitzio, men and women devote all evening beside the graves of their relatives. In many locations, men and women have picnics at the grave site as effectively.
Some households build altars or tiny shrines in their homes these generally have the Christian cross, statues or images of the Blessed Virgin Mary, photos of deceased relatives and other persons, scores of candles and an ofrenda. Traditionally, families spend some time about the altar, praying and telling anecdotes about the deceased. In some areas, celebrants put on shells on their clothing, so that when they dance, the noise will wake up the dead some will also dress up as the deceased.

Public schools at all levels build altars with ofrendas, normally omitting the religious symbols. Government offices usually have at least a little altar, as this vacation is observed as critical to the Mexican heritage.

Those with a distinctive talent for writing sometimes create brief poems, referred to as calaveras (&quotskulls&quot), mocking epitaphs of friends, describing interesting habits and attitudes or funny anecdotes. This custom originated in the 18th or 19th century, right after a newspaper published a poem narrating a dream of a cemetery in the future, &quotand all of us have been dead&quot, proceeding to &quotread&quot the tombstones. Newspapers dedicate calaveras to public figures, with cartoons of skeletons in the style of the well-known calaveras of José Guadalupe Posada, a Mexican illustrator. Theatrical presentations of Don Juan Tenorio by José Zorrilla (1817–1893) are also traditional on this day.

A common symbol of the holiday is the skull (colloquially named calavera), which celebrants represent in masks, known as calacas (colloquial term for &quotskeleton&quot), and foods such as sugar or chocolate skulls, which are inscribed with the name of the recipient on the forehead. Sugar skulls are gifts that can be offered to each the living and the dead. Other vacation foods contain pan de muerto, a sweet egg bread created in numerous shapes from plain rounds to skulls and rabbits, often decorated with white frosting to look like twisted bones.

José Guadalupe Posada created a renowned print of a figure that he named La Calavera de la Catrina (&quotcalavera of the female dandy&quot) as a parody of a Mexican upper-class female. Posada’s striking image of a costumed female with a skeleton face has become linked with the Day of the Dead, and Catrina figures often are a prominent element of contemporary Day of the Dead observances.

The traditions and activities that take location in celebration of the Day of the Dead are not universal and typically vary from town to town. For instance, in the town of Pátzcuaro on the Lago de Pátzcuaro in Michoacán, the tradition is extremely diverse if the deceased is a kid rather than an adult. On November 1 of the year soon after a child’s death, the godparents set a table in the parents’ house with sweets, fruits, pan de muerto, a cross, a rosary (utilized to ask the Virgin Mary to pray for them) and candles. This is meant to celebrate the child’s life, in respect and appreciation for the parents. There is also dancing with colorful costumes, usually with skull-shaped masks and devil masks in the plaza or garden of the town. At midnight on November 2, the people light candles and ride winged boats called mariposas (Spanish for &quotbutterflies&quot) to Janitzio, an island in the middle of the lake where there is a cemetery, to honor and celebrate the lives of the dead there.

In contrast, the town of Ocotepec, north of Cuernavaca in the State of Morelos, opens its doors to visitors in exchange for veladoras (modest wax candles) to show respect for the recently deceased. In return, the guests receive tamales and atole. This is only accomplished by the owners of the house where somebody in the household has died in the earlier year. Several individuals of the surrounding regions arrive early to eat for free of charge and take pleasure in the elaborate altars set up to get the visitors from Mictlán.

In some components of the nation (especially the cities, exactly where in current years there are displaced other customs), children in costumes roam the streets, knocking on people’s doors for a calaverita, a modest gift of candies or income they also ask passersby for it. This custom is equivalent to that of Halloween’s trick-or-treating and is relatively current.

Some people believe that possessing Day of the Dead products can bring excellent luck. Several people get tattoos or have dolls of the dead to carry with them. They also clean their houses and prepare the preferred dishes of their deceased loved ones to location upon their altar or ofrenda.

If you’re not a Brit, you may possibly not know that Britain was when a Republic. We had not one particular, but two civil wars, 1 appropriate right after the other, both of which helped a Member of Parliament referred to as Oliver Cromwell to demonstrate his capacity as a military leader. Cromwell had been to Cambridge as an undergraduate, and possibly gave orders for the soldiers of the New Model Army to spare King’s College Chapel from the vandalism and defacing that most churches suffered in that time of Puritan spiritual correctness. The chapel was employed as a steady for a even though, and for a location where soldiers could practice their art with no receiving wet, but the interior finishings and stained glass had been left remarkably undamaged.

This constructing is a triumph of late medieval English architecture. At the age of 18 the pious and unworldly Henry VI forcibly bought up buildings along the Cam and had them razed to make space for his dream of producing a location of understanding exactly where young males could continue to prepare for the priesthood following leaving Eton, his other creation. Work started in 1441, but it was five years ahead of Henry could lay the foundation stone of the chapel. He focused virtually all of his royal attention on Eton and King’s College, but took time out to attempt to make peace with France. Then as now, this was not a well-known move. His hobby meant that he failed to notice that his nobles have been rebellious – so rebellious that half of them precipitated the Wars of the Roses, the other half joining in because half of a war is no entertaining at all. Unsurprisingly, possibly, Henry – who went on constructing – lost the war.

The winner, Edward IV, had much better things to do than build chapels, but Richard II got it half-completed just before he, also, discovered himself on the wrong end of a rebellion.

This time the winner was Henry VII, who despite getting a challenging man completed the chapel off in 1515. His son, the unlovely Henry VIII, fitted it out inside with some exquisite fan vaulting and interior woodwork. His initials, and these of his second wife, are lovingly entwined in the woodwork. Unlike a tattoo, woodwork can be replaced. I’ve usually wondered why his subsequent wives didn’t gently suggest that he do the decent issue and spend to have the bitch’s initials chiselled out.
