weekly email from February 27, 2009

Hello friends & loved ones,It's 51 degrees this morning and as I sit here I realize that any vanity I have is going to go out the window in less than 2 days. On Sunday morning, I along with 6 other fellow churchmembers, will have our heads buzzed in support of one of the congregants who is losing her hair because of chemo. The bigger picture is that we will also be indirectly supporting all people who live with cancer each day of their lives; it will give us just the briefest glimpse of what their lives might be like with no hair. And they don't have a choice of losing their hair.Why on earth would I ever think of buzzing my head though, you may ask. Because I'm frequently talking about stepping outside of one's comfort zone and I figured if I'm going to talk the talk, I need to walk the walk. I've got my baseball caps (imagine me in a baseball cap) all set to go. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous and maybe a titch scared but, I'm human, and I have just over 48 hours left before my lovely locks are gone...if only temporarily. I promise to take pictures and put them on my blog.

Until next week (when I'll be bald), stay safe, stay happy and stay,paul

Greetings from Idaho! I'm bored to death at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you present here and can't wait to take a
look when I get home. I'm surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I'm
not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, fantastic site!
