months ago i mentioned having lunch with my fellowship director. she is my mentor and my hero. i admire her like no one else.
i found out this morning that she has pancreatic cancer, and that it has spread. i don't think i have to tell you what that means.
after weeping around the office, my boss sent me home. after weeping around my apartment, i wandered around venice a little bit. i have come online now to email her a letter telling her how much i love her and how much i owe to her for changing my life.
i wish that i wasn't so far away.
