On a brighter, happier note concerning Tim -- please be aware that Tim's publishing board has unanimously approved the publication of two more books, which are forthcoming from North Dakota State University Press.

As the executor of his literary estate, I could not be more relieved and grateful, as you can guess, and I hope that everyone will continue to watch for these amazing works -- for amazing, they truly are.

Jennifer

Yes, and those books will be Hunter's Log, Volumes II and III and Hiking All Night.

Both wondrous works of art.

Thank you for noting that, Jennifer, Cathy. This is a big leap for NDSU Press, who published last year's Devotions. The new books total more than 400 pages. NDSU and my old farming buddies are also funding a mammoth New and Collected. It will run way over 1000 pages, and I'm sorry to say it will probably be posthumous. At least Jenny won't be casting about, Cherokee feather in hand, for a publisher.

My brother and I had a meeting with my radiation oncologist here in Fargo this morning, and he is not nearly as pessimistic as my oncologist at Mayo. I also met with my great personal physician this week, and he too is pretty upbeat. I begin the Mayo Moon Shot Monday, the combination of chemo- and immunotherapy that is cutting edge medicine. Meanwhile, I'm doing great, 25 pages added to Last Poems? since Divine Mercy Sunday, two Sundays back. I have never written this well or swiftly, not even close. Of course nothing makes me a happier camper.

Hi Tim,

I have to say that "The Mayo Moon Shot" - the combination of chemo- and immunotherapy that is cutting edge medicine - does have rather a nice ring to it, almost poetic - or else it sounds a bit like a cocktail!

I'm an incurable optimist, myself, and looking on the bright side of any situation is always the way to go, in my opinion.

Way to go, Tim!

Jayne

Dear Spherians,


A big day for Tim tomorrow. His message:


Immuno-chemo treatment two tomorrow. Prayers appreciated.
