Dear Andrew - so sorry to hear the sadness in your tone - I would embrace it for all its work and say "XXXX you, cancer - I beat you for another year - go to XXXXXX"
You got one more "year candle" on the cake - time to bring out the fire extinquisher, just in case.
In the mid-80's when my friends were dying all around me of AIDS, breast cancer, MS, heart attack, etc ... I wrote a song about
"one less candle on the cake". The character was lamenting his count-down to death ( this was before the pill-cocktail they use on HIV and AIDS patients that extends their lives) since then it was truly a death sentence...
-you do not have one less candle but one more - and another and another.....
-would love to see pix of your wood work ( for obvious artist reasons)
Here's to a great 2014 for you !!!
p.s. I went to your blog and saw pix of your work - simply wonderful.
