This is my  maiden voyage into the blogosphere.  Why now?    Milestones . . . . . yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of my having been diagnosed with cancer.  Even more impressive is my impending 60th birthday.

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 & fitness, loneliness & love, failure & success, spirituality & emptiness, romance & betrayal ~ indeed, a life of superlatives.  Just the life I needed.

Along the way, I have endured (and caused) much pain which has been the catalyst for, and the most direct path to compassion, understanding and growth.  So I will use this forum to write about Life’s Lessons Learned.  I hope you will join me.
