The Other Side of the Bridge – I’m happy to report that the post-treatment funk seems to be lifting. More energy, more appetite, more lightness in my head. It doesn’t hurt that it is a beautiful fall day, and the tunes are good 😉. I intend to use the opportunity to build strength and keep busy, essential components of my well-being.
I’m not sure how to present this thought in a way that doesn’t come off sounding anything but sappy, so apologies in advance. For years, when I was asked how I was doing, my answer would be “Best day of my life.” Corny by some standards, and for others maybe bordering on obnoxious. More than once, the person asking what they thought was a rather innocuous question was stopped by a response that was something other than a perfunctory, “fine”. This was my way of reminding myself to make the most of that one day, and it still is. We really only have today. It’s here and it is now. You’re using a part of it to read this post, which may or may not be best use, but I am not the one to say. The rest of today is ahead of you, make the most of it, make a difference in someone else’s day if you can, even in the smallest of ways. I believe that’s why we are here.
Love and support to all those in the battle.
I’m taking a photo a day to help the American Cancer Society fight for a world without cancer. Like so many, I have known family and friends who’ve battled the disease, including some who continue to fight. This year, I find myself personally impacted, and it occurs to me that this platform offers a way to channel my passion for photography to help relay a personal journey that may resonate with others.
