Straight Dying, Intro

Meela woke up late. So groggy, she moaned to herself.  She poked an arm out of the warm sleep nest and prodded her phone, ten o’clock? She pushed the pile of covers off and rubbered her eyes. Why hadn’t Mom woken her up?   Through the door she heard nothing. The house was silent, no kettle whistling, no calls to her little brother to stop watching...

I just made the appointment for a CT/PET scan.  It’s been almost a year. mid May 2014 is when I finished radiation, mid February was when I stopped chemotherapy. This week was a bit of an upset in small ways.  I had realized that three times now I’ve started working out. Which is amazing. I feel good enough to work out!  But every time...

Stanza two will be next week! I can’t tell you how difficult it seemed to be to make this happen. Yet I’m excited to get the creativity flowing again, to renew my love affair with the written word.

I used to consider myself an artist and a writer. Gosh that seems so long ago. Recently as I hear is common at 40 (ha I can hear the midlife crisis jokes now) But honestly that seems to be a large part of this age, and I’m sure it will continue. I am questioning what my values and ideals are and making sure my life is in alignment with them.
