Subject: Jen wellness update #43 (12Jan01) The Holidays
my last update was dated 14th November; sorry for the hiatus. I took a break in late November and made a solo trip to England to see my family and a special old friend.
It was inspiring to see Fiona - she had breast cancer two years ago, and is now able, tentatively, to look back on it as a chapter in her life, instead of her whole life. And I was happy to be able to inspire her - we flew a two-line kite on Bristol downs, which she found mesmerizing. Tom & I went and got her one for Christmas....
Jen and I had quiet and difficult holiday season: she's just not been 'right' for some weeks - fatigued, coughing, depressed. She wrote elegantly about it in her last update.
And early in the New Year I decided the time had come for me to take some time away from work, to be with Jen. I've meant to write several times, but it's quite a busy life with all Jen's appointments and mini-crises.
