We Dream For Jeanne Found this on the website of someone I like and admire a lot, author Spider Robinson. Jeanne's his wife, and they're having some tough times.

------

HELP JEANNE STAY HEALTHY

This year a brilliant surgeon, Dr. Andresz Busczowski, helped Jeanne Robinson beat back a rare and virulent form of biliary cancer. But it’s so rare even he can’t say how much time he‘s bought her, how soon it might recur. For technical reasons she is not a candidate for either radiation or chemo. Her only hope for longterm survival is therefore to reboot and reinvigorate her failed immune system. She needs special therapies and meds, extensive diet and lifestyle changes, and a stress level as close to zero as possible. All those are expensive, none are covered by even Canada’s excellent medical care...and like many artists today the Robinsons were already running on fumes financially.

But Jeanne, a Soto Zen monk, has been spreading love and kindness in all directions for a long time. So her Buddhist sangha in Vancouver, her neighbors on Bowen Island, and friends as far away as Florida have all spontaneously come together to raise funds to help keep her around as long as possible. Your participation is welcomed. A Bowen benefit concert, “WE DREAM FOR JEANNE,” will be held at Cates Hill Chapel at 7:30 PM on Friday Sept 18 details here; cheques may be made out to Jeanne Robinson in Trust and sent to Mountain Rain Zen Center, 6183 Fraser St. Vancouver, BC V5W 2Z9; goods or services can be donated for eBay auction by contacting Jan Schroeder at <dreamforjeanne@aol.com>, and PayPal donations can be sent to http://wedreamforjeanne.blogspot.com/.

I put together the attached audio from an excerpt from "Spider on the Web" # 71," Spider's own podcast.  I haven't heard back from them for permission to use it this way, but I think he'll be fine with this.  The music, appropriately enough, is "Eternal Hope," from Kevin MacLeod.  You certainly have my permission to use this as you will and pass it along far and wide, as long as you don't mind the audio imperfections from my front-bedroom studio.

I'm a poor Broadcasting student (in many senses).  I hope you can help them out, though.

Thanks.

The "Heretics" Promo Wanted to make sure you check out my just-completed Promo for my reading of "Heretics," by GK Chesterton, on Podiobooks.com.

Of course, Heretics has already been appearing here.  But I think I chose rather well as to what brief excerpt effectively conveys the overall message of "Heretics."  Didn't do anything terribly imaginative with it.

But Promos are good.

Thanks!
