FLIPBOARD

Rumination is the focused attention on the symptoms of one’s distress, and on its possible causes and consequences, as opposed to its solutions. Both rumination and worry are associated with anxiety and other negative emotional states; however, its measures have not been unified.

ruminate

verb ▶ ru·​mi·​nate | \ˈrü-mə-ˌnāt  \ruminatedruminating

  • v. To turn a matter over and over in the mind.
  • v. To chew cud.
  • v. To reflect on over and over again.

WHAT we ruminate, we  ‘chew over’” according to psychotherapists. The word is derived from how cows digest their food. Cows chew, swallow, regurgitate, then chew again. This works well for cows but what humans chew over is our distressing thoughts. Ruminating, therefore, means to brood over upsetting thoughts by replaying them in our mind. https://bzfd.it/2SPviK5

Over the years, Bob Thurber’s work has received a long list of awards and honors and appeared in over 60 anthologies. With an established reputation for delivering lean, tight prose, his stories are straightforward and impactful, and his candid voice resonates, leading one to “undiscovered corners of the human heart.” His stories are “authentic and have enormous verisimilitude. No false notes.”

Born in 1955 and raised in abject poverty, Bob made it through high school by the skin of his teeth. He spent the next twenty years working menial jobs while teaching himself to write. During that long apprenticeship, he studied and worked at writing nearly every day, refining his skills, before submitting his work for publication.

Since then, his remarkably concise stories (which he refers to as “small fictions”) have found homes in numerous magazines, including Esquire, appeared on hundreds of websites, and received numerous awards, among them The Marjory Bartlett Sanger Award, The Meridian Editors’ Prize, and The Barry Hannah Fiction Prize. He made Esquire’s top-ten list in the magazines 78th anniversary short Fiction contest and has been nominated for numerous Pushcart Prizes.

A recognized “pioneer in the Micro and Flash crafts” he is considered a “grand master” of the form, and his stories are frequently utilized in schools and universities in the US and abroad as teaching tools and examples of concise prose.  For more information visit: www.BobThurber.net

Two of the three aggregated FLIPS above deal with cancer, something of which I have more than a passing familiarity.

This blogger joined the cancer community when a mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) DX (diagnosis) came in 2006, just prior to a 58th birthday. Now at age 70, I have been in full remission since late 2009.  That status was only achieved after some 16 months or various rounds of chemotherapy followed by an allogeneic stem cell transplant on August 22, 2007, from an unrelated German donor.

After a brief relapse in the fall of 2009, I was successfully treated with Tomotherapy (targeted radiation), while remaining in full remission since that time.

The cancer journey has brought me in touch with a host of other survivors, one of whom is Max Wood, a frequent contributor on this message board, who once offered the following data:

“In the U.S. I think we all know that MCL represents about five percent (5%) of all Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (NHL).  That equates to roughly 5,000 to 6,000 cases a year.  There are roughly 75,000 cases of NHL a year.  I recently read that NHL is also rare in that it occurs in about four percent (4%) of all cancer patients.  According to the American Cancer Society, there are about 1,700,000 cases of cancer diagnosed each year. Four percent of that would equate to 680,000 annual cases.

“So, MCL is far less than .5% of all cancers.  That’s a small number — unless it is one of us :-).

“That’s one of the best reasons I can think of that we should always seek out a specialist at a top MCL center if we end up as one of the .5%.”

Virtually everyone who visits California knows about the iconic and ubiquitous burger outlet known as In-N-Out, so the title of this post is not to be confused with that operation. Instead, the blogger is archiving information about population changes for the Golden State. Specifically, we focus upon the similarities and differences between those who migrate to the state and those who leave.

transparency (trăns-pârˈən-sē, -părˈ-)►

January 3 marks the seating of new and old members for the 116th Congress of the United States. Much of the rhetoric embedded in speeches and press reports will keynote the word, transparency.

The One Hundred Sixteenth United States Congress is the current meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, composed of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. Washington, DC, is the meeting location, as we all know.
