The Yellow Diaries

Yellow Signs 2010

A quick yellow post-it

I’m out!

Looking for the first yellow signs of 2010

Stem Cell Transplant:

It was an odyssey. A trip to the core. The marrow had its way. Now I’m full of cheerful stem cells, like fields of sunflowers I travel inside and watch them turn their small, yellow faces towards me. They giggle and beam.

Go forth and multiply.

I am thankful to the care and attention I got at Henderson Hospital in Hamilton. I will write more.

Thankful to my father. Yellow thanks to Bobcat, Noni and Chris, Tina and Peter and Rose all super commuters. They came to infuse yellow into saline drip. Giggle, laugh, talk, read me out of my Diloted drowse. Shamim and Hanan for daily calls. Doc Raina for daily mantras, daily prayers and daily SMSs. Sindi for the inspiration. Namrata for keeping the sisterhood aflame. Deepa for words to float by.

Many Yellow souls unfolded before my bleary eyes.

And thank you Yellow Diarists. Know that your love and support hit the mark.

Time for a nap.

Napattack!

That’s just how it’s gonna be for a while.

  10. < ![CDATA[Thank you - was waiting to hear from you for the New Year. Nice to hear it's over. Yellow is my new fav color. I am amazed at all the comparisons( not sure if that is the right word) you can come up with to associate with that one color. What if the cure is somehow linked to that color somehow. Anyway, I can see why your interest is in Journalism. Sweet dreams. Lisa. I want nothing more from you but to be continuosly intrigued by the exuberance of your verbosity. Ha ha - that's my attempt at writing.]]>

  12. < ![CDATA[Dear Lisa:

    I'm so glad to read your new post. Thanks to Shamim, I knew that things were going Ok with your treatment. But it's always a big relief to hear from you directly. I find myself short of words to describe my deep, sincere admiration for you. You have transcended your physical beauty, you intellect and your talent. You have become a highly enlightened being from whom we have all learned a great lesson. All my love and yellow goes to you. May God continue to bless you the way He has. And may He continue to bless us with your amazing presence for many, many years to come.

    Xoxo,

    I'm glad to hear that you are OK after the transplant. I don't know you but I am well acquainted with your work and I was deeply sorrowed when I heard the news. Your work with Shamim Sarif, has had a positive effect on me, it has made me feel normal and for that I thank you. I made a donation to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and hope that will contribute to finding a cure.

    I admire your positivity and optimism and will continue to send you positive thoughts and strength. You are an inspiration and I look forward to your next blog.

You are one of a very few celebs who seem real and down to earth to me. I'll be thinking of and praying for you every day. Thanks for being here.]]>

  16. < ![CDATA[Hi, Lisa!

    I'm so glad to read you again ^^

    This is the first step of your way to your priest and I'll be with you, as every day, supporting you. I hope that in this time of nap, you smile every minute, every second. I hope that everyone around you, give you all the love you deserve. For my part, while I'm away, I give you mine. Thank you for taking always a part of your life, always YELLOW, don't forget it. And now, a song to listen before bedtime, with a nice melody and some nice words, all for you.

  20. < ![CDATA[Hi Lisa:

    I am Indian Bengali living in Vancouver, Canada for a few years now. Unfortunately, it was not until yesterday that I came to know about this (throughout 2009, I was very busy and didn't quite have time to look into anything else other than my own technical area). I am really very sad and disturbed to know this. I have seen many of your previous movies. Your performance in Water was just outstanding. I didn't watch it at first. A friend of mine told me about it and then I saw the movie*. I can recall my friend (she is not Indian) telling me 'they brought out the Indian side in her in this movie' and I had chuckled. Indeed, it is so true.

    Many years back, when I first saw your acting in Kasoor, you kinda made an impression right then. All of yesterday, I kept playing those old Kasoor songs on youtube. Too bad, many of us would never know how your hindi accent really sounds :D And don't worry, these days when I visit India I am shamed to speak English, my accent is not easily understood :)

    India loves you and Canada loves you too (I am sure you already have seen lots and lots and lots of examples of this already). You are a brave woman. I hope all these blogs here on this site provides education & courage and reminds all of us never to give up. And I can already see that you are making a difference in some of our lives.

    A warm new year's greetings to you from the west coast! Keep the words poring. We love to read more of your writings. I, for one, will keep watching the posts.

    Hugs,
    Ani

  21. < ![CDATA[so wonderful to hear (read?) from you again!

    keep on fighting, you will make it through this!]]>

  22. < ![CDATA[Hi Lisa
    I'm your new fan from the Czech Republic, approximately a week before I watch your web page. I could not believe what I read here. Luckily, you're a strong woman. I know that everything will be fine. Sorry for my English.
    I saw your movies recently. Fascinated me. You're a great actress. And probably look like a great woman. I can not find anything negative. I can not believe you're so great. And when you just wrote here. I realized just how close you are to your fans. It's unbelievable, somewhere at the same time you would write on the same Web site that I watch. I hope you understand me, my English is not really good. I want to wish you good health. I wish you much that you make more films like I Can not think straight, or The World Unseen. I guess you say that I'm just one of the other fans, maybe they will not even read. But much to mean to me. I wish I could meet you in person. I know, stupid. Can I get your autograph? Please watch for yourself.
    2010 will be great for you, I believe in it.
    Love Blanka

    P.S.: Nikdy nezapomenu. (S láskou, modlím se, kéž by jsi odepsala alespoň jedno slovo....)]]>

  23. < ![CDATA[Dear Lisa,

    It just got a little warmer in New York City. It is nice to hear your voice! I can feel the yellow rays. Now add a bit of compost (this reply counts) and water...

    Hardening Off "If you sow your seeds somewhere warm, like in a heated greenhouse (or hospital), they won't be strong enough to withstand the normal outdoor (bony)
    temperature straight away. They need to get used to colder temperatures gradually, so they can grow smaller cells, closer together, which are stronger than the sappy ones that form when the plants are in easier conditions (like isolation tents). When the weather's getting warmer, you start taking your seedlings outside for a short time each day (seedlings flourish in the fresh air), bringing them back under cover at night. You gradually increase the time they're outside until they're outside day and night. Remember every seed is an individual and might be satisfied with some different set of circumstances."
    - The folks at Seed Site

    Cheers,
    Susan]]>

    Happy New Year!Glad that the stem cell transplant went great!
    I wish I could write like you about treatments and trip to the hospital.
    The Christie Hospital is my local (over here in U.K you can call a local a pub) but because i go every 3 months for check ups and results...i call it local.
    I am more creative in food that all this medical talks..
    Like you..got amazing nurses and doctors and my partner always coming with me.I just pray that they find a cure for every single cancer.. I will celebrated with a yummy cocktails..the only down of treatments..i.e tablets and injections is that put ur body on weight...awwwww...that is the only part that i dont like at all..is not like i am vain..but who wants to put on weight like that...
    Hope you back again to do movies..i think you are fav in comedy.
    I could talk about food (my profession and hobbie or gardening) but i dont want to make u sleep lol. I could talk about for hours.
    So what is your favourite dish? and your 3 favourites nationalities in food?
    I love tapas (spanish where i am from and is small dishes with different type of ingredients..from seafood, chicken, vegetarians), do like spicy food also,.
    As a chef love to try every single nationality.My dream is to create a dish where every single nationality is there.I will let you know when I accomplished that!
    Well hope u have a lovely nap Lisa! and keep strong in ur odyssey!
    You are an inspiration!
    Take care and hugz from mayte xxx]]>

    A Happy and a Healthy New Year 2010 to you!

    Whether you are up or down, you beam like the sunny yellow sunflower! Good to hear from you when you can.

    Praying for your good health. Continue your faith in Him and keep strong. That is your strength and I hope it will never fade.

    BTW - I was wondering if you could kindly post your local mailing address and not the addr in England. Something like a post box address would be helpful to have. Pls provide and I hope you can. Thanks.

    Take good care.

    I hope you have a wonderful day and take it easy.

    Wa ha ha~~ Dear Lisa, what a great and inspiring news to us who love you so much all over the world!

    During your staying in the hospital, we were so worried because we did not know whether you were O.K. or not. We kept praying for you day after day in our "Loving Lisa Ray" fan-club in the internet of China ( http://www.mtime.com/group/lisaray/discussion/724507/ ). We expected good news of you so eagerly! Thank God it “IS” a good news! I feel like singing and dancing for you right now, ha ha~

    Stay strong in your belief, and in your soul. It’ll help your body get stronger, avoiding any bacterial infection. Moreover, it will bring you totally recovery as soon as possible! Come to your blog to see, to feel and to recieve the pouring love and endless blessings from all your fans around the world! It will surely help!

    Keep fighting, Lisa! We are all for you! And I love you!

    Big hugs and kisses,
