    Soul time..................

    Hi everyone,

    I've recently been diagnosed as having prostate cancer and I've taken the idea from our dear Irish Rose to ask for all your positive thoughts to help me.......................I am going to be undergoing an operation on September 8th and if you could, each and every one of you who wants to, wish me well it would be greatly appreciated................I am, to quote Steven Stills at the Woodstock Festival....."scared shitless" but it has to be done and overcome.

    I never imagined that I would do something as public as this but after Rose did it I thought that the more people who send positive thoughts ........... well who knows hey?
    Da go Te'
    Best to you

    Hello Peter,

    I can only imagine the thoughts running through your mind. A couple of years ago, my uncle was told he had a form of brain cancer and had only a couple of months to live if he left things untreated. After many treatments and a lot of prayer, he is now in full remission. Please stay optimistic, as our thoughts and prayers will now be with you.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    All the best for a full and speedy recovery.
    Try to stay positive and continue to paint and do the things that you enjoy (as long as it's not against doctors' orders of course.

    Hey Pete!!!!
    You can handle this mate!

    Quite understandable, I dare say, your reaction. But there's one thing I have found based on my own illnesses:

    What is, is. And that is usually plenty to handle. It's probably easier on us when we don't anticipate and suffer from worse things than are actually at our doorstep.

    I myself had a near miss with a melanoma that a doctor kept ignoring. When I finally wrestled him to the ground and demanded to see a specialist it turned out that I had skin cancer and it had grown to a bald man's hair under the size that usually indicates a fatal outcome.

    They caught yours. That's a blessing.

    But having said that, I found it kinda fascinating watching it all. It was a trip. I had no idea what was going to happen. But all the attendants had the requisite long sympathetic faces when they were doing me up, and I found myself yacking it up with them and it was great. Nuts, I know. But I can say this, I needed no pain medication afterwards, and got healthy -- which may or may not have come from experiencing it all with a great deal of altitude. I was along for the ride. Not by design, calm just sorta took over me from out of the blue.

    Admittedly, I was lucky, but I could have gotten into the drama of it all, but all that would have accomplished would have been creating needless suffering.

    They say that hindsight is 20/20, I just opted to move past the moments of emotional distress to that place.

    This is only my experience, and maybe I was foolish, but I felt it may have kept me from convincing myself that I should to feel more ill and going that direction, led by my emotions. . . which I too certainly felt at points, and that's a fact.

    Rising above it may be easier said than done, my friend, and forgive me for sounding cavalier.

    I wish you great health, good doctors, and lots of support where you need it -- at home and all that.

    My prayers are most definitely with you!!!!!!!!

    I feel you can rise above this, Apache warrior!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I look forward to many many more great paintings. . . and songs. . .

    This is your song, maestro. Play it grand.

    Peter, what disquieting news from someone of my generation whom I've come to know here and respect on several levels. Please know that, of course, my thoughts and best wishes will be with you. I'll counter-quote you from the world of Rock with some lyrics by Tom Petty from the song "I Won't Back Down":

    "Most things I worry about
    Never happen anyway."

    Keep a positive outlook in the face of this challenge in the knowledge that you have friends here who care about you ... and many songs left to write. And never back down.
