take a break

After a month of scans and needles ( I only wish I had examined my thoughts as well as they examined my neck ), I have dissenting opinions.
A scan says cured, a bloodtest says no. Rock, Scissors, Paper no use, we wait and then repeat.

I choose cured, although the blood test is accurate, if cancer still exists it is very very small. Cancer casts a harsh glare, there is no sense cowering before it. That said, I am going to take some of my dad’s advice and take February off

I’ll be on my bike or working out, or reading a good book, or head to chef Amaury’s ( see previous post )

It you have read or followed me, thanks — See you in March. I believe in you, and your ability to improve and succeed. As an excellent rugby player told me once, “I cannot run a marathon, but I can always take one more step”.

    I say cured! Take care, Bill…although I see you’ve posted a couple of things before the end of February. I was reading backwards on your posts and ended up here.

  3. no cancer, just a niggly little poem desperate to get out!

  4. “I choose cured.” I love that. Get out and enjoy the month. I think we ALL should get out and enjoy the month in this spirit.

    In fact, I am going to go play disc golf today in the rain just because I choose cured. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Enjoy your time off-hugs-Joelly

    Dear Mr. Bill,

    A prescription for healing. Cartwheels might be in order, too. I have a strong feeling that all of your readers will be waiting for you when you return.

    be blessed and well
