4 days after Chemo #2 – following “My Personal Call to Greatness!”

Marvelous, no pain, only the fatigue. A sound arises from deep within erupting as loud expression demanding attention, “WHY, why this time out?” Yes, I know, the deepening of the experience of life, of connection with others, of compassion. BUT, “WHY, why this time out?” Will it enhance my creativity? ripen meaningful communication? allow me […]

3 days after Chemo #2 – following “My Personal Call to Greatness!”

Thanks, Judith, for a lovely walk this morning. It felt so good to swing my arms, move my legs, look up to the sky and breathe the fresh air. Ah, the joy of living and walking in the canyon. Today is the third day after Chemo on Friday. In my first round of chemo this […]

Day after Chemo #2 – following My Personal Call to Greatness!” 2 months, 2 weeks.

We landed in Denver Wednesday night later than we expected because of a late flight from Ljubljana to Chicago – missing the Chicago to Denver flight. We delighted in the sight of the Colorado mountains. The first thing I did on Thursday morning was cut off the rest of my hair that I had been […]

Two weeks and a day after Chemo 1 Cycle 1 – from Ljubljana following “My Personal Call to Greatness!”

Peschiera, a lovely town on Lake Garda in Italy, was a stop we made en route returning from Verona back to Ljubljana, Slovenia, yesterday.   Later we stopped to have lunch in a small village in Slovenia. This is the view (below) from the outside deck where we were sitting. One of my favorites are Porcini mushrooms. […]

A week and 5 days after Chemo Cycle 1 – following “My Personal Call to Greatness!” from Verona, Itlay

I am sitting in the lobby of Hotel Italia in Verona, Italy. Glad to report that our trip across the ocean from Denver to Washington DC, Dulles, to Munich and then Ljubljana was uneventful, just like wonderful travel should be. Usually when we land oversees, usually early in the morning,  we stay up and do not […]

A week and two days after Chemo Cycle 1 – following “My Personal Call to Greatness!” 2 months and a day

Walking was slower this morning, but the breezes blowing through the canyon were invigorating. Staying the Course By BJ Gallagher Our journey of life is about progress, not perfection. It’s not about doing one thing 100% better – it’s a matter of doing 100 things, 1% better each day. Progress is evolutionary not revolutionary, and […]

Before the Throne of Beauty XXVI by Khalil Gibran After a deep silence, mingled with sweet dreams, I asked, “Speak to me of that beauty which […]
