'The Voyage of the Rainbow' was uploaded to YouTube this afternoon. YouTube are doing what they have to with these things, so the link is not yet active. However, if you go to Nigel Paterson Music on YT (my Music Channel) & are a bit of a wizz with computers, you might be able to discover where she's moored!

You always think that you're the only one with a particular problem, until, that is, you begin to write about it on Mudcat. Since January, Ann & I have realised increasingly that we are not alone...we share similar, if not identical, 'trials & tribulations' with so many of you. I like to think of us all living on 'Mudcat Avenue'...good neighbours dropping in for a coffee & a chat, getting together for a yard sale (Our younger Daughter lives in Charlotte, NC), spending lazy days at the seaside with a watchful eye on the kids! Life was like that when I was a child...beach games...lying in the un-cut grass in the fields behind our house, gazing up at a clear blue sky (the sky was always blue when we were kids wasn't it?). Something's got lost along the way...everything seems so serious now... except on 'Mudcat Avenue'. Blue skies, unlatched doors, even some un-cut grass (to which the Resident's Association turn a blind eye), coffee on the stove. I know that I have to live in the 'Here & Now', but just occasionally, I think it does no harm to remember the time when Grandma & Grandpa were still alive. My 'Here & Now' is not very comfortable at the moment, which is why, I suppose, I want to reflect & be 'somewhere else'.
         My thanks, as always, for your Love & Compassion,
                                                                                       Nigel & Ann
                                                                                       xxxxxxxxx
         PS The coffee's just about ready.

It may take a while to adjust to the diabetes diagnosis, but now that you know you can start doing what you need to do to take care of yourself Many people use the expression "control diabetes." I prefer to say that I manage it. Best wishes that you will soon find what works best for your body.

Janie, your beautiful prose, grown & nurtured by your experience, knowledge & insight, calms me & allows me to 'take stock' before surmounting the next hurdle.

Sandra, I don't remember you mentioning before that you too were being treated for cancer. You sound very positive when you describe the relationship between your Oncologist, Receptionist & Yourself. And as you so sensitively say: "....maybe next year".

The 'launch' of 'The Voyage of The Rainbow' has had to be postponed yet again. All being well, she will be afloat this coming Friday, 8th June. My med. tests (Diabetes confirmed), keep clashing with the Apple Store. Just had a slightly bizarre thought, will it be safe for me to visit a store called 'Apple', now that I'm diabetic....??!! Awkward attempt at humour...trying to lighten my mood...only got the diagnosis this morning (Wednesday).

It's Jane's Silver Wedding Anniversary today. We all so want twenty-five years to become twenty-six.
                Much Love to You All,
                                                 Nigel & Ann.

You Good People never cease to amaze me. You make me laugh...You make me cry...You comfort & reassure me...You make me think & reflect...You remind me, over & over, that I have Friends on whom I can rely, Friends with Warmth & Love in their Hearts. Friends for whom Compassion is a given & not a burdensome duty.
       Spaw, you're absolutely right, Janie "nailed it in one", eloquently & profoundly. Many wise, beautiful & funny words have been written in this thread. It is fast becoming 'a thread for Life & Living'. The accumulating wisdom is priceless & has become a 'Life Library' which I visit every day, often more than once.
       Jane remains positive & talks openly & freely (certainly with Ann & myself) about her health. The time we spend with her has become ever more precious. We laugh...cry sometimes, often when we're least expecting to, but above all, we are living our lives. Janie's words express what I'm trying to say: "....to pull on the anchor chain to call us back to the present, and the opportunities for delight in the midst of all life brings".

Really. Life truly is one thing after another. Life is movement, always changing, never ideal, often rocky and rough. It helps me so much to realize and acknowledge that there is nothing terminally unique about facing adversity, even wave after wave of it.

Pain is part and parcel of life. Resisting rather than accepting that, in my experience, creates and increases suffering and misery. Regrets or resentments about the past, and fear of the future rob of us of today. There is a crass but apt saying "If you keep one foot in yesterday, and the other in tomorrow, you piss all over today.

George Bernard Shaw. "Life wasn't meant to be easy, my child, but take courage: it can be delightful!"

I think, but am not certain the following take-off is Robert Penn Warren "Life wasn't meant to be easy. It was meant to be life."

Nigel, you, Anne and Jane give all of us a gift by sharing here, and allowing us to share, thereby anchoring and reminding us to work toward perspective, delight in the moment, and helping all of us, not just yourself and your own family, to pull on the anchor chain to call us back to the present, and the opportunities for delight in the midst of all life brings.

I am grateful to you.

when I see my cancer surgeon every 6 months I regard it as an opportunity to chat with him & his friendly receptionist. I've recently passed the period when it needs 6 monthly visits cos it can come back in he early years, but I've resisted that idea of seeing him very 12 months!! Maybe next year ...

To all of you who've posted since my last on 31st...such wise words...such eloquent words...such loving words...I've read them over & over, like I want to make absolutely certain I can't ever forget them. Indelibly etched in my mind so that I can take them with me everywhere I go. The recent news about Ann's health has hit us both hard...feels like a huge step backwards. We're both trying to be as positive as we can...Ann feels well, Jane feels well, we're all doing & enjoying most of the things we usually do. In that respect, Life is normal & familiar. What I can't expunge entirely from my waking thoughts is a shadowy spectre, somewhere over there, in the corner, barely visible, but prescient nonetheless (I'm speaking metaphorically, I'm not having some sort of psychotic episode!!). What Michelle says is absolutely true, but at the moment, we both feel threatened & insecure.
          Note to Bruce: The joke you emailed was not only well-timed (there you go again!), very funny (and poignant too) & the line about the cat, well, we need him/her over here NOW! I'm waiting for the Pest Control Team to arrive as I write...we have some additional, underfloor members in our household who have turned up, uninvited!
          Going to do our best to enjoy the extended bank holiday that stretches out before us,
         With Love & Gratitude,

I know first hand how much it stinks to have the recurrence hanging over your head but by being monitored, she can rest easy knowing that if it should come back, they will have found it relatively quickly making it easier to take care of if necessary.

Well, gentlemen, all I know is that two glasses partially filled are exactly that. A burned down house is forever gone, a partially filled glass won't transform into 4 full glasses, and no amount of cheery imagining will change either one. One might find a different perspective, though- depending upon the awareness with which each sip and gulp is tasted, savored, gulped and swallowed... and whether one drains the glass or sits watching it in fear of the day it's empty.

It's no use fluttering our hands in dismay, wishing the nightmare under the bed would just go away- but shine some light under there and you will find living gold amongst the dust bunnies and fangs.

Someone here will have the words you need, Nigel. Spaw has earned much wisdom through his years of living, so his words carry experience and stubborn strength. Mine are but wild, wee things from the dark woods.

Nigel- My husband and I have reason to understand the "one darned thing after another" perspective. I choose to adhere to the approach that "has to be monitored every six months for the rest of her Life" means a party twice a year.

Thank you, my Dear Friends. Janie's comment fits for me & Ann. Yesterday, Ann was expecting to be discharged by her Oncologist...she had a Malignant Melanoma removed five years ago & has been fine ever since. But she was told (for the first time), that because the cancer had spread (also safely taken care of at the initial op.), she can never be discharged & has to be monitored every six months for the rest of her Life. Naturally, Ann felt very disappointed that this particular medical episode couldn't be finally 'put to bed'. We were also told, again, for the first time, that a recurrence was always going to be a possibility, which, ironically puts her in a similar situation to Jane. Ann was not a very happy bunny when we were driving home! It certainly is 'one darn thing after another'. Nobody warned us that retirement could be like this!

Helen's funeral was beautiful. The service was in Humanistic style...tributes, readings & Music by Mozart, Helen's favourite composer. It was our first experience of this type of funeral & I have to say that it was a deeply moving, dignified 'final curtain' for a highly respected Drama Teacher. The sun shone & many of Helen's former students, some of whom have gone on to be professional actors, attended to pay their last respects. There was more laughter than tears, even though the sadness of the occasion was always in the forefront of one's mind.

Today is going to be a mixture of happiness & sadness. This afternoon (Friday) we will be attending the funeral of a teacher (Helen) with whom we used to work, but at her funeral will be loads of former students & teachers (If the posts on FaceBook are anything to go by), many of whom we have not seen for years. We have been asked by Helen's Family to dress colourfully to celebrate her Life...she was a larger than life, dynamic, inspirational Drama teacher. It's a gloriously sunny day which fits perfectly with Helen's personality.

Thank you, Sandra, gnu & ChanteyLass. The medication trial is another act of Faith, writ large! Guest (23rd May, 11.23am) I was intrigued by your reference to Enrico Fermi & squash courts. Needless to say, Google came to my rescue. Amusing to ponder him conducting some of his experiments in squash courts & ironic in the extreme to consider that a Nobel Peace Prize winner became intimately involved with the Manhattan Project. I doubt I shall feel as elated as Mr.Fermi when he made his 'squash court discoveries' when I upload on 29th, rather, a quiet sense of satisfaction of what I hope will be perceived as a job reasonably well done.
       Nice & warm here in London, averaging out around 25℃...time to sort out the weeds & get the front door painted.

The news about Jane's coming treatment is great, Nigel. I have a good friend who attended and still attends a clinic for lupus, and although it is trying, it's been a big help to keep her keeping on. It's good to hear that the medicos are thinking in terms of years.

"Getting audio from LogicPro to YouTube is, for me, 'a challenge too far'...having an expert sitting at my elbow gives me a much needed confidence boost."

I laughed when I read that statement. There are days when I wonder at the abilities of people who can whiz around computers. I'm a bit past the stage where my cure for everything computers is the on/off switch, but not really that far removed from it. I'd offer one small bit of advice: write down everything the guy/gal does, then do it from your written page before you leave. You'll feel like Enrico Fermi must have when he used a slide rule to predict where things would go next when they created the first sustained atomic chain-reaction at the University of Chicago in December of 1942. It didn't get away from them, good thing for the squash courts.

Latest news about Jane; she has joined a medication trial. It's a drug that is already licensed in other countries, but not yet in the UK. She has been told that she is a 'perfect candidate'. Jane has committed herself to a long-term programme...two years, but it means she is monitored very regularly & very closely (more so than if she was just 'in treatment'). It is somewhat intrusive in terms of the number of clinics she has to attend each week, but after much consideration, Jane felt it was the right course of action, as does the whole Family.
          I know it probably seems a bit weird that 'The Voyage' will be published on a specific date, but the fact is, I need help with the upload & 29th May is the first available date I can see a Trainer at my local Apple Store! Getting audio from LogicPro to YouTube is, for me, 'a challenge too far'...having an expert sitting at my elbow gives me a much needed confidence boost.
         With Love to you all,
                                       Nigel & Ann
                                       xxxxxxxxx

Pete, one of the qualities I hope for in a good & trusted friend is the ability to "Agree to Disagree". I think we've both 'ticked the box' on that one (-:

OK, here goes second attempt.
             I've never spoken publicly before about my early experiences with religion & I realise I'm in danger of highjacking my own thread, but your posts demand a response. Spaw, ChanteyLass, Bruce, Dan, Pete...thank you, as always, your words touch me deeply.
             Pete, I've been searching since my early teens & am now content with what I've found & where I am, spiritually speaking.
             Dan's wise words: "Religion never works ... Faith, never fails". At the risk of repeating myself from an earlier post, my Faith resides in people & nature. Despite too many examples of "Man's inhumanity to Man", I have an unshakable Faith in a Goodness that resides within most of us, so.....I have Faith in my Mudcat Friends...I have Faith in the Doctors who are treating Jane...I have Faith in my beloved wife, Ann...I have Faith in my ability to create new Music. God in his/her various guises plays no part in my Faith. I am a member of the Human Congregation & it is there my Faith had it's genesis & it's essence remains.
             Much Love to You All,
                                             Nigel & Ann (And Nigel personally)

Spaw, if I read your post, will you have to kill me or will I simply self-destruct??!!

So Joe....You managed to complete your CIA mission in Egypt and are now about to try and infiltrate the IRA....Is that right? I mean like I'm just passing along the gossip to you. If this is wrong let me know. Then again if you're CIA you won't admit it will you?   Yeah........Well good luck anyway I guess..........maybe......


Spaw
