Just Say Hello

Just Say Hello

This is me about to eat my first meal the day of my cancer surgery - The black and white picture below is me today

About a year ago, I started this daily blog to help me deal with the path of my life after I was diagnosed with aggressive cancer. I've only missed writing it a handful of days and my lifestyle is very hectic.

When I don't hear from people that I know are struggling with deadly conditions I get very worried. I've not heard from certain people that I feel close to for a long while. They usually email or DM me on Twitter. I've got a good memory and I notice when I've not heard from you even though I get thousands of emails daily.

Please check in with me just to let me know you're alright. I don't care what physical, mental, or spiritual condition you're in - Just Say Hello.

You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy.

Today's pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created. In the 1970s and 1980s, he wrote and produced the songs that defined that era and everything that came after: "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family," "Like a Virgin," "Modern Love," "I'm Coming Out," "The Reflex," "Rapper's Delight." Aside from his own band, Chic, he worked with everyone from Diana Ross and Madonna to David Bowie and Duran Duran (not to mention Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Prince, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, INXS, and the B-52's), transforming their music, selling millions of records, and redefining what a pop song could be.
