My mom's been reading Icebound, the book by the physician stationed at the south pole who had to operate on herself due to breast cancer. The book is relevant in that a) I'll likely be going to the south pole (stop asking me about it, I'll let you know when I hear) and b) my mother is a brave and courageous breast cancer survivor herself.

She just sent me the following in an email:

I just have to let you know what Dr. Nielsen says in her book. "Very little about any of us was conventional. If there was, we wouldn't be here." I just thought that sounded like you. You always wanted to do the unusual or something different than anyone else. I think that is a good thing and I am proud of you for that.

Love ya mom.
