Yesterday I got the news that my dad is going in for a biopsy in a few weeks. Today I learned that someone I respect has very serious, aggressive, multi-site cancer.

The first piece of news daunts me less than one might imagine. It's for prostate cancer, which is often slow-moving and not worth touching. Of course I'm worried, but in the scheme of things---for a lifetime pack-a-day-plus smoker, this is moderately good news.

The second unfolding is pretty bad. There's no getting around this; it's very bad.

It will be important to stay awake and stay present over the next few weeks and move very carefully and deliberately in order to refrain from increasing burdens and causing harm. I must be careful, careful. When confronted with a precious and fragile thing, one must treat it tenderly, with great care and respect.

Just saw a t-shirt at a NJ rest stop: "You can't scare me: I'm a youth worker."

I like it.

Mine would say "You can scare me. You just can't stop me."
