I'm healing nicely. Yet, another transition appears.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and well wishes.  I am healing very well, and am grateful!

Mark and I got news yesterday - our dear friends and landlords aren't able to afford living here either.  They are packing up and selling this beautiful house.  We will have to move out by May 1.  Everyone is sad, but it is part of life and the economy - we live close enough to the SF Bay Area where our affordable little houses in the redwoods are now very high in value, and we're being priced out of even these little houses.  A place I used to rent in San Francisco in the 1990s for $550/month is now going for $3000/month.  Easily taken, too.

So, we are planning to move back up to Nevada City, where my family lives and the rent is still affordable.  It is very sad, leaving these redwoods.  We have lived here for 12 years.  But it's not our fight, unfortunately.

So I might be a little quiet for a while, but it's only because we are figuring out the transition - but you never know, sometimes people say they'll be quiet and then they can't shut up ;)

Love you guys.  Glad you're coming with me. :)

I am reaching out to the friens I've made while growing as an artist - I need your support. Not in any way but emotional.

A week ago, I scalded myself. It's enough that I have MS, but a burn this extreme (1st and 2nd degree burns) has made it crazy stupid to do even the smallest of things.

I thought that MS made it hard,. but I really do sympathize with my dear Uncle, who suffered burns at the age of 8 and still tried for a professional operatic career. Maybe one day I'll go into that, but not now.

I am hurting.  My stomach and right breast were hit with boiling water, all my fault, and right now I am trying to deal with the burns, let alone what it will look like later.  Right now, I don't care.

Keep me in your thoughts, will you?  Love you guys very much,
