"Sparklepony" (actually, Jenny Conlee of the hyper-literate rock band, The Decemberists) having a rough day on the IFC show, Portlandia. But real life can be crueler. Ms. Conlee later learned that she had breast cancer.
Reasons to be cheerful: it was recently announced that her cancer is now fully in remission.
A brave reminder of the impermanency of all things, and an inspiring vision of courage in the face of adversity. I wish Ms. Conlee continued good health, as well as all other sentient beings.
