DAY 027 -- "Taking Off My Skin Suit"

Okay, time out! Whoa! Hold it! Stop right there!


Cancer and cancer, then the cancer cancered more cancering in cancer’s cancerous cancer! Then, cancer! And, cancer! And, what’s this? Cancer!! Well, CancerCancerCancerCancerCancerCancer!!!!


Whew. That should do it. You see where I am today. These side effects, beginning with this irradiated skin, may be doing what the Docs predicted (imagine a constant itchy sunburned sunburn), but knowing that everything is proceeding according to plan doesn’t help to get outside of it.

So, bullpuckey! Enough already! With an assist from Diane’s brilliant camera hand & eye, I’m stepping outside of it for today, taking off my skin suit and body casts, at least mentally, and redirecting my spirit to the grand beauty all around us.

Why, look there! Just today, right out in our back yard, gardens and woods: Mother Nature’s free show of shows. Hawks and deer and monarchs, oh my!

Let’s just enjoy it (the cancer will be here when we get back). Let’s take time for a few shots of the best life has for us, free for the asking. No artsy-fartsy effects needed. Ma nailed it.

Watch, breathe, live.

More as we go, El

    1. Thank you kindly, Margaret. I'll pass it on. This "family" of hawks has taken up residence around the brushpile, where all the tasty little mice & company live. Thanks for playing, Best, El

    1. Thanks, Kathy: Another one-plus week of radiations, so "it will get worse," but if I can get there, we'll be on the mend. Thanks again for playing. Best, El

  3. The power of positive thinking ... so many little things we take for granted and fail to see. Enjoy this day!

    1. Thanks, Susan. Yes, one net effect = seeing the little things in a big way, and making the big things smaller. Not sure I can take all this profundity! Thanks again for playing, Best, El
