No title

I am here but sometimes I watch as though I'm not, and think what that will be like.

I don't have a bucket list. There's nowhere I'd rather be and nothing I'd rather do than be here, with my people. I am in no way the parachuting-out-of-an-airplane type.

No one knows when they will die, but the visceral experience of my every day in this realm is both a powerful motivator to find contentment and a fucking fear fest.

This was meant to be a poem, but it's not. I had a few lines yesterday in the sleepy mind before being really awake but I didn't sit up and write them down. So here are some sentences.

Yoga makes me a better person. Actually if everyone practiced yoga everyone would be a better person, in whatever way the phrase "better person" has meaning for each of us.

Coloring in a coloring book and knitting hats is not what I pictured I'd be doing in my fifties, but I am, and truthfully I love doing both. Except the part about the cracks in my fingers.

This is NOT meant to be one of those cute social media "25 things." I would never put you through that.


  1. Not sure why it took me so long to follow you but I am now. I too like it just where I am--with my people. Glad you are doing so well after going through so much.

  2. Just found this blog and loving it. I,too, have been hit again with the cancer bomb and after two years have slowly raised my head as I keep shouting about the pitiful research monies we get for MBC and for the majority of people not understanding what this cancer is and does to us. I'd love to have you visit my website and join me as I rant and rave about being ignored.
