Brutal Honesty - Talk

Well I am doing a talk on the 1st of September! It is a breakfast 9:30am for 10am. It costs R45 per person. It seems to be a motto : why sleep when you can work! It does make me laugh!

Brutal Honesty - Book cover photos.

I had a make up and hair day on Thursday and my mom and dad took some photos... I will be using the first one as my book cover. (amazing what a bit of make up can do!)

Shock Memorial Service

I have to say that I am shocked and incredibly saddened by reading a blog today. I have followed blog for the past 1 - 2 years. I have not been on the website for awhile due to being busy (as I am sure many of us know what that is like)

I went on today and saw that he has passed. I must be honest, it is really hard to see people with the same condition as mine dying. It happened so quickly! He put up a good fight.

The quote on his blog when I looked at it today said:

'When I stand before God at the end of my life, I hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and  could say "I used everything you gave me" Erma Bombeck'

Rest in peace.

Busy with my book

I am giving my cover a bit of thought and need to have some photo's ... I would share an except with you from the book:

“...I do struggle to think that James will be with someone else (even though he says he won’t / cant) Realistically he would be young and would need someone. It is my belief that we have soul mates in life and at some point we are together again. I feel like this would be challenged if life is shared with another (stupid I know) I am also scared that there is nothing (which I don’t believe but its hard not to think about it)...” Deirdre Kohler

“...several times during Sandy's last year of life she told me, "I want you to love again. Being with someone else will not take away from what we had... Promise me you'll love again." So I lied to her and said I would. And as time goes on, I know for certain that once you've found your soulmate, that's it. The thought of someone "replacing" her never enters my head or my heart. So I apologize to her for saying I would love again...” Dan O’

Newspaper Write up!

I was in the newspaper today! On Monday I gave a talk called "Celebrating life" where I spoke about the tumour. One of the ladies wrote something and the paper came by yesterday to interview me! I didn't think that it would be on the 3rd page today!

All Good!!

Well I FINALLY went for my scan! And had absolutely great news!! Everything seems to look good - no growth, stable etc.

On Women's Day I will be giving a talk on "Celebrating Life". I must be honest I am so happy about the results that I really do feel like celebrating! I will be sharing my story since being diagnosed with a brain tumour four years ago... three brain operations, radiation, chemo; visited five countries; had a solo exhibition; written a book; opened a coffee shop…

My book has been sent for printing... I have changed the name to "Brutal Honesty" I will be going to have some photos taken next week sometime!
