My dad's most-recent MRI follow-up revealed 2 new 1/2-inch liver spots. Hugely disappointing, but this is the nature of how cancer unfolds. He will start chemotherapy very soon, and now we're back over to "care" mode instead of "cure" mode.

I find it comforting at this time to think of Oliver Sacks (also, this essay, and this one, and perhaps I will be reading this one too).

Right now I also have a lot to process and think about with respect to applying for academic jobs and working on academic writing and plans for the upcoming year. During the conference I got partway through writing a reflective blog post on the subject, but too many people, too much to do, too many things happening.

Regardless: always hug your loved ones and tell them you love them.
