This past week I was fortunate enough to spend time in Northern Michigan with some fantastic friends. On our last evening we sat by the lake in the dark, listening to the water lap up onto the beach and watching some distant fireworks across the bay. We stared up at the stars. I feel doing this tends to open my thoughts up from my immediate reality, into a broader and more beautiful perspective. I really couldn't have wished to be in a more serene and happy place at that moment. I came across this this essay today by Oliver Sacks. It comforted me in a strange way and resonated with my recent experience on the beach so I thought I'd share it,
I've had the opportunity to begin writing a blog series for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The first post is about the creation of my support network so far from the motherland. Rather fittingly it was posted on June 24, the day I officially received the news that I am in remission!
Thanks to everyone who has sent me well wishes, positive vibes, prayers and funny notes. We are forever grateful.
