the unusual delay with my posts doesn’t mean I stopped posting or was running out of ideas. I am recovering from surgery. purely accidental during check-up a malignant tumor stage 1 was found in my right kidney. as if I didn’t have enough rollercoaster rides! 40% of the kidney were removed, no complications. but the recovery takes a long time. one of the causes for this kind of cancer is working with color-solvents. unfortunately I did that for about 25 years, colored all my artwork with benzol based magic-/ AD-/ pantone-markers. what helped me to become successful in my design job nearly killed me. now I hope my computer work is less threatening.

Make sure your daily dose of vitamin D is not below recommended minimum for adults. I have read in science magazines that it helps to prevent various types of cancer.

Ah yes, we’ve reached that time when they start snipping bits off… seriously, sorry to hear about the setback, hope you are doing well and have no more of that.

Hi Mr Bacher, I will never forget how a single consultation session with you has enlightened me on my mindset about design and how much it has helped to improve my work. Do take great care of yourself and wish you all the best sir!

Best of luck to you. I know my day will come. 😉

from hans –
you can do something! go to check-ups once a year. the only problem with ultrasound is, it doesn’t detect small problems, when something starts to grow. CT scans would, but are too dangerous – one session is equivalent to 400 x-rays. imagine the radiation danger! MRI’s are the best, but very expensive. another solution is a healthier lifestyle! keep your cholesterol down, no fat food, not too much alcohol, no smoking, sports! I know – forget about all the fun!

from hans –
