This is my maiden voyage into the blogoshpere. Why now? Milestones….yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of my having been diagnosed with cancer and even more impressive is my impending 60th birthday. And no, my life has not whizzed by. I’m not wondering where all the time went. I have hammered out a life of extremes ~ poverty & wealth, sickness & good health, lonliness & love, failure & success, spirituality & emptiness, romance & betrayal ~ indeed, a life of superlatives. Along the way, I have endured much pain which has been the catalyst for and most direct route to understanding, compassion and growth. So, I’m going to use this forum to write about Life’s Lessons Learned. I hope you’ll join me.
