It has been two months, more or less, that I have been eating smarter, exercising more, settling into this renewed life. It isn’t quite a year from the start of radiation, about a year from when I headed to Ghost Ranch for the first time. So much has happened since then. It has taken is year to settle, to settle down, to rest into life.
I am trying to imagine what I want for this new, renewed life. Most of my life has been spent responding. Much of my life has been spent receiving what the world has to offer – jobs, experiences, opportunities. I haven’t spent too much time thinking about what I want to do. It hasn’t been a bad life, the opportunities that I have responded to have been wonderful, but I want to take a moment or two, a day or two, or more to dream.
In the meanwhile, it’s the last day of camp for my kids. There are more bits of summer to savor.
