As many of you know I've had a spot of cancer. Overall it’s been quite invigorating.
I have a 50/50 year by year chance of living for the next 5 years and as I’ve just had major surgery and been pronounced cancer free I’m working on the assumption that the coin for the next 12 months has been flipped and landed in my favour. I’m figuring pretty long odds of anything incapacitating me from scratch within a 12 month period, which I won’t be able to replicate at any other point in this 5 year period.
Living year to year is not new, the mortality horizon gives it an interesting frisson though.
Initially I thought a "Lurks Last Legs" tour. Canada, Glastonbury, visit some old friends in Europe.
I think I'll have that in reserve and revise the weirdness that is flyfishing. It's less strenuous, involves another performer, [I can use guest performers perhaps]..and it's fittingly unapologetically surreal.
Sent letters out to Canada, Glastonbury next.
Be based in NZ til next late may firming that up as well as 2020 projects, an international clown symposium in Wellington and the ever simmering Clown Tomb project.
So each year at a time with a small investment to carry on to the next if I don't explode into a bodysuit of melanomas and expire in a puddle of morphine as is the first world norm. Or get brain cancer or the larger of my testicles becomes a man eater. I'm told the odds are non specific. Dramatic tension!
Deadline for new book is nov 1st at the Latest. Just cover to go.
Looking for accom in NZ and internationally and additionally pondering putting burningman at the end of the season in Sept.
