Thinking what to write next...

...and it will probably be a discussion of Giddeon Burrow's Brain Tumours: Living Low Grade, which came out a couple of months ago and which I immediately purchased directly from his website (why buy from Amazon when you've got the option to support small publishers), but I just haven't got around to writing about it with the care it deserves. It surprised me with the accuracy of its insights and its intimate knowledge of the alienation that is specific to those of us who live, basically, from scan to scan, always uncertain and in constant limbo about what direction a slow-grower might take, i.e. malignancy lurks at every turn. I suppose that in the meantime I will say that I highly recommend it to anybody who knows anybody with a low grade glioma. Kinda explains a few things very lucidly. It's a super quick, easy, and meaningful read.
Giddeon also has a blog, although I admit I have not spent much time perusing it, just for lack of time.
