My hair's falling out

"I touch you to
see that you are not
I took a walk up the hill with Dawn this morning and after my shower, I brushed my hair forward, and a bunch of hair fell out.

So far I have managed to avoid looking like a cancer patient, because I look healthy, and also because I am simply fatter than you expect a cancer patient to be.

But the sight of a bald woman - it pretty much screams "cancer patient". I shall have to get used to that. 

Went to a talk/workshop about mindfulness at Kaiser today. I really enjoyed it. I jotted down some notes in case I end up leading a retreat for people with cancer in September.
