New beginning of something.


“New beginning of something.”


Haha, what a vague title that is, but this exact wording is how I feel right now.


Because just today, I’ve F.I.N.A.L.L.Y finished with my cancer treatment. Yes ALL of it!!!


I’ve been feeling emotional since I woke up today. As the last injection was done, the chemo nurses asked me what my plan was, to which I joked: “Get the hell out of here, & never come back again!” & we all laughed most delightfully & high-fived. Then I balled my eyes out as the nurses gave me bear hugs. 


The bus home passed beautiful autumn trees near the London Zoo. The leaves of various hues were falling freely, enriching the ground. The autumn sun through the window was still warm to the skin, & it felt as though it was zinging away the trauma, & instead storing up as much goodness in to my body. 


New beginning? Yes. We have officially turned over a new leaf to the next chapter!! – Of what? To what? That, I’m not sure. But no rush. I’ll get there. 



  1. Glorious congratulations! Look out girl! The next part of your life will be eye-popping! Much aloha, Li

  13. Hi Tamami, I read your blog a lot when I lived in Paris, loved it, and left a few comments. I hoped to visit you in your market stall someday and I actually moved to London a few years ago. Alas, going to your stall was not to be. I’m sorry to read about your recent health issues but I’m happy that you have finished your cancer treatment. Yippee! Congratulations! I’ll be following you on your new blog xx
