In my ongonig efforts to stay as trendy as possible, here is my list of 25 random things about me, myself, and I…



*Brief health update: I’m doing great, thanks!  This week, I’m doing my 2nd of 6 follow-up chemo cycles (5 days, once a month), but am not hampered much or at all by those.  I’ll go in for another MRI in a couple months; the last one was inconclusive (“increased bloodflow activity:” that’s either good or bad, can’t tell).  Thanks for your prayer and encouragement!*

In watching yesterday’s Inaugeration Day coverage, I’m struck by a few random thoughts, none of which I can articulate much more than a paragraph or two(this being my 2nd attempt at this posting, as WordPress viewed my first attempt unworthy, and decided to lose it :-p ):


In lieu of a lengthy Christmas letter, I’ve begun putting my “year-in-review” thoughts online the past few years.  This year, I’ve created an entire new site devoted to these thoughts.  Many of you received an email pointing you there; for the rest of you, you can head over to http://phildavies2009.wordpress.com/ for some end-of-the-year, beginning-of-the-year revelry (perhaps a little merriment tossed in there, too.  Absolutely no ballyhoo, though…).  Enjoy, and happy 2009!

*Brief health update — I’m doing great, and awaiting my next round of follow-up chemo (which gave me nearly no side effects last time around).  I’m getting around perfectly fine these days (when I can get through the snow, that is), still figuring a few things out with how my brain handles different types of stimuli (but no seizures, thank God), and very thankful for your prayer, support, and encouragement this past year!*
