In this season of Thanksgiving, I am realizing a new sense of abundance in my life, and the experience of cancer has much to do with this awareness. I’m especially grateful for…
The love and partnering that Jess and I share.
A deeper sense of connection with my family.
The caring and compassion of our friends and community.
Cancer survivors who have shared their stories with me – they are both proof and inspiration that cancer is not an automatic death sentence and that it is possible to have a long and fulfilling life with cancer.
My doctors and their staffs have combined strength and knowledge, along with an integrated care approach that gives us constant reassurance that we are in the best hands possible.
Appreciation for all the ordinary little things in life becoming so awesome while contemplating how brief our lives are in the overall scheme of things.
The occasional grace that allows for dropping into heartfelt communion with others and letting all kinds of trivia just fall away.
That at 58, I’m old enough to truly appreciate all of my journey, even, in an odd way, this part (some days more than others, of course).
I'm learning more about my art, and from my art, every day. It's not so much a matter of skill or practice... mostly it's a shift in perspective, a way of shaping how I look at and exist in the world.
