I remember the first time I realized I was stronger than my classmates. It was an altercation in 7th grade gym class. I was so stunned by my, what felt like overwhelming strength, I remember thinking I could really hurt someone and not realize it until it was too late. I suddenly was aware of my own physical strength and…

Can’t think of the last time I slept until 9, but I did this morning. Very sluggish this morning. Either I must be healing at an incredible rate or the pain pills are doing their thing and knocking me down for the count. Have to say that’s an interesting thought, pain pills knocking you out vs. ‘whatever’ is causing the…

I haven’t cried. Nope. A revelation, yes. Surprised, no. The last time I cried so hard it hurt was when my brother was killed training for the ’96 Olympics in cycling. I cried because I didn’t get to ride (bicycles) with him. In fact, he was supposed to visit me in New England and ride through the changing leaves as…

Good late morning. I’ve seen the sun and rain 3 times today. It’s still morning. Looks like I’ll have to time my walk to catch the dry sky sometime in the next several hours. I had a much needed, quiet weekend. However, I did get out a couple times to see friends. They were events I had specifically planned several…

Join me?

How can I bring you along on my journey? How can I show you what I’ve learned in the hopes that you too will learn. I’m not necessarily trying to teach you anything. Or am I? What is my objective for writing? Do I feel a need to illuminate? Do I feel a need to help? I like the idea…

Good Morning. I think the weight of the last several weeks is catching up to me. I’m exhausted both physically (surprise, surprise) and emotionally. I was just realizing the day I found out I possibly had cancer was only the first week in January. It’s still January! What a way to start the year. Because I was moved through the…

I’m back in my chair writing again with the computer propped away from my very sore belly… I went to the hospital early Tuesday for surgery and you heard things went well. In fact, I received a voice mail from the surgeon (missed him at the hospital yesterday before I left for home) and in his words, “surgery went great”,…

Just Let Go

Just let go. Easy to say. Hard to do. Why hold on? Hold on to what? Fear? That’s what’s there. Fear is a creator. Fear is a source, not the result. Before I let go, I hold on to something else. Hope? Love? Desire? Anything. Then I let go.

Well, this will be my last post for a couple days. Surgery is tomorrow early, early morning, so will take all your wonderful thoughts with me. I’ll be staying overnight and not sure when I’ll be able to use a keyboard afterwards. Don’t think they will let me keep my phone. I am going to absolve myself of all typos,…

Had to take a nap this morning. Cold is going away, but it certainly is taking it’s time. Walk time is now when the sun is up and the air has warmed a bit, much to the consternation of the dog. I’m sure it seems to him that he’ll not get out for his daily ‘newspaper read’ aka sniffs and…
