The operation has left a pretty big scar. Once they opened me up the surgeons found that they could do nothing to remove the cancer, and they discovered some more. Very bad news for me, and really the worst case scenario.
So what now? ....
I want to use my time to fix the things I can and put as much love as I can into the world before the boatman rows me across the big river. I'm not afraid. We all have to face this one day. I want to continue my cosmic adventures. I want to see my beloved grandmother Brigid again.

There's so much trouble in the world, yet all I've had directed at me lately has been love and kindness. I've never felt so loved and appreciated. I think my heart is going to burst. Old friends have come to see me in hospital and we all want to make music together again.
People from everywhere have been telling me how much my music means to them. I didn't know. I didn't know how many people have been touched by my songs.
It's breaking my heart to find out now when I have so little time to do anything about it - but I am also very happy to feel the achievement. It's what I always wanted. Not money. Not fame. I always wanted people to feel what I feel. The magic of music.
From the bottom of my heart, thanks to everyone who has appreciated & supported my music over the years.
Love never fails,
