Wow. It's been over a week since I posted The Confession, and I am still feeling slightly overwhelmed by all the positive response and love and support I got bombarded with, by friends and strangers alike. This will warm my heart for a long time to come, and when things get tough (as I am sure they will) it will be easier to handle, knowing that I have such tremendously awesome people behind me in this. Thank you, for giving me so much hope and love. It really means the world to me.
And the cavalcade of good news in my life continues. I got a job as observation assistant at the Swedish Solar Telescope on La Palma! So in the autumn I will be working on the Canary Islands for a couple of months. Yay, travelling, not to mention observing! So much awesomeness!
