|How do you do.....|
For those of you who are not familiar with me or my work,,,may I introduce myself.
I am SCARLET The PIRATE VOYAGER
My good fortune is that I have been blessed with the talent for being an "Extreme" Digital Imager and teacher in this School of Art.
****On the downside, I have been cursed with a brain tumor, diagnosed April of 2003.
The wonderful support that I have received during this crisis is, to say the least, nothing short of Phenomenal.
My struggle has ironicly been chronicled in some of my slideshows. It has been quite awhile since I have been able to put another presentation out there and with people's constant eagerness to learn the updates, I have had help from my online partner and real life dear friend, Lefty, to get this put together.
And so the War goes on.....
The tumor in my head continues to wax and wane,,,
Growing and Shrinking and Growing again like a regimented tide against a shore.
Due to the refusal of my last doctor to allow me to have ongoing,expensive observatory tests and his despicable blaise care, I sought out the opinion of yet another oncologist; my 15th specialist. The tests that I had been pleeing for, to find that illusive answer, were finally ordered.
The outcome was not good.
It seems that I have now grown yet more tumors- one in the lobe of my left thyroid gland, a rather large-sized one in my left kidney and possibly, yet to be confirmed, in my lungs and breasts. I have evaded any problematic symptoms, other than the continued pain and swelling in my head, up until a couple of weeks ago. More tests are to be scheduled, a diagnosis and final prognisis yet hang beyond my reach.
A NEW WAR IS ON THE FOREFRONT!!!
The most important confrontation is going to be:
HOW CAN I SAVE MY ART
WHICH SO MANY YEARS AGO SAVED ME?
Having created over 400 pieces of online material, I have to pay to be stored on space at private servers due to Webtv but more importantly than cost is it's Fragility.
IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO ME,
MY ART WILL ALSO DISAPPEAR
The dilema that is now plaguing me is how to turn it into viable material that can carry on, with or without me.
Henceforth, trying to put the barriers of my health aside, my new push is towards conjuring up the necessary energy to, first, learn how to and next be able to assert all of the spiritual will that I have, in order to be able to try to preserve
My Heart,,,,My Art,,,,My Soul
by crossing it over and bringing it into a continuum of a new medium in which to forever have a representation of that which is Me.
I ask all of you for your thoughts and prayers to continue for me.
They have, indeed, gotten me this far and now, deciding to take on a challenge which is almost too overwhelming to consider but is a must, I need
your strength,,,your optism and your confidence
to assist in my success with somehow possibly being able to pull this off.
PLEASE CARRY ME IN YOUR HEART
