Living Under Treacle

Written before, by several years. I read it now and it's not so far out. For everyone affected, as I was between then and now by some, by any of the things this story deals with. Image from pikrepro.com and free for non-commercial reuse.

Timor Mortis Me Conturbat

Warning! Contains Latin with which I have taken a syntactical liberty. Although strictly speaking, the verb is generally at the end of a Latin period,this is merely a phrase. It means 'fear of death disturbs me' Image is by the 17th century painter Philippe de Champaigne, I don't think he'll mind me using it.

Another Day

I think I'd be less worried if it were me. Although 'no evidence of disease' was declared two years ago. The clinical trial isn't over until 5 years after the last person finishes the course of treatment. So it's crossed fingers and worry-worting everytime a 3-monthly check requires just a few more tests. Everything was OK, though. Another bullet dodged.
