Writer’s Note – I’ve been on an extended hiatus for about three months. So, I first want to say “Thank You” to all of you who continue to stop by and check out my blog. This blog and several to follow have been accumulating in my head for quite a while.
July 1, 2014 First of all, I apologize for not doing my job. I’ve been busy this summer doing my other job – the one we all call “Work.” I’ve finally succumbed to my career-related tendency to work my ass off for absolutely no reason. I tried to keep my “nose to the grind stone” at bay for as long as I could. But this summer has been too much. So, I sacrificed my “real life” for my “work world life.” Of course, I get nothing out of working any harder at work, and certainly no “attaboys” from those I work for and around, but I’ve always been like this – always. Always trying to please everyone and hating every minute of it.
As a result, I have stopped writing, stopped blogging and emailing, and stop communicating about my disease. Perhaps I feel like there’s nothing more to say, or perhaps I really don’t think anyone – outside of my immediate family – really cares. It’s difficult to know – day in and day out – what twists and turns that life will throw at us. Having cancer makes those twists and turns even more intense. Therefore, a lot of what I do is live in the moment. I think that’s a pretty good philosophy for all of us to live by.
So now my “real job” begins, anew…..
|One of the all time greats…
