All the time in the world

Back in 1969, the James Bond film “On her majesty’s secret service” was released, with George Lazenby in the title roll and Diana Rigg as leading actress. The film caused a stir because it was the first without Sean Connery as Bond.

For me, the film is most memorable for the song “We have all the time in the world” performed by Louis Armstrong. I wrote an arrangement of this song for Sixten Lakes giant sextet recently. The Giant sextet consists of seven to nine players, while my arrangement was for five players. Just like in Pirates of the Caribbean, these numbers should be seen more as guidelines.

The title of the song alludes to not having to hurry things as life is seemingly endless. My diagnosis from September 2020 initially changed this for me, giving a sudden feeling of urgency. Since then, I have undergone surgery, various rounds of cytostatics and radiotherapy, plus alternating electric field therapy, all of which have helped me reach where I am today.

This week, I got the results of my latest MR-scan. The images show that there are no signs of activity from the cancer cells and that the area surrounding the operation site looks completely healthy. Receiving this news is fantastic and allows me once more to say: “We have all the time in the world”.

Enjoy the music.

Just an ordinary guy trying to live an ordinary life. I do ordinary things like run, cycle and ski. I swim if I have to. I enjoy all sorts of music and like to play some too. I enjoy good food - maybe too much - and a glass or two.
