Re: Another one of those...

Marc,

Very glad to read your and Eric's and Rob's comments, and I hope you guys understand my fast words now.

I am working on the reconstruction of all my mountain pages, and for that I have to upload again hundreds of images, and for the past three days I've been in a hospital.

Yes my friend, I just found I may have leukemia and I am here to do several tests.

I just did 15 minutes ago a bone marrow biopsy. Man, that was by far the scariest moment of my life. The needle is so thick and so big that scared the hell out of me...

But I'm here, won't give up, and a year from now I expect to be laughing about it...

This answer is good to my friends Eric and Rob, and soon there will be an article about it.

Cheers friends!

Dear Paulo,

what beautiful reflections your picture shows, but what a sad news i'm hearing from you!!! But i also want to be close to you, my dear friend, even if i know you only through your beautiful pages and your breathtaking images.
Che la forza sia con te, sempre!!! Strength always be with you.
Silvia

Re: Another one of those...

We're all with you on this one Paulo! You are young, strong and have a lot to live for.
Breath out the bad stuff and breath in the good stuff. (The prayer of changes)
I have a friend older than you who has recovered from leuk.
Eager to hear how it goes.
We can all learn from it.

Re: Dear Paulo,

Slvia,

Even as a young Sper with just over a 1 year as a member, you presented yourself as a important member to our comunity and besides that, great photographer (I mean that!) and a very dear person. Not just for me, to a hell lot more you bet.

Thank you for the kind words, and about the flesh and blood relationship, don't bother, we are all friend thanks to SP. And even though a lot of people don't believe that, you can met people online, make friends, and even form a family. Look at me?

I met Lilianne online, we chat for about 15 days, then I moved to São Paulo in just 25 days and bam! 5 years later we're married!

:)

Forza Sempre!

Hugs

Paulo

Fabulous!

Another one of your masterpieces, Paulo!!

I know by the way I'm not very present on SP at the moment, but that's simply because I don't want to just be warming up "old repertoire" - I'm waiting till I have the occasion to do something really substantial again, like for instance last year at Grand Mountet...
But I might post later on some new photos I took in Saxon Switzerland - I put some on Facebook today, already...
Cheers, Paulo,
Eric

I wish you with all my heart all the strength and power you can possibly have to overcome this crisis, and come out of it as a winner!

Poem for Paulo ...

"Now the wind is still;
In a moment it will be raging ..

Now my soul is young;
In a moment it will be aging ..

And high above the pines, I wrote several lines ..
And left them in a bottle for you to find.

Now the dream is rising;
In a moment it will be past.

This breath is my first;
It will all too soon be my last ..

And on a windy coast, I made several toasts,
To you and me and the sea and no one heard."
