Prepare for Secondhand Embarrassment Dear Reader

I miss physical intimacy.  I met my wife while I was in the U.S. Coast Guard.  Not to brag, but I was quite the stud.   My wife used to love watching me shave and shower, but now I hide away.  My muscles have been replaced by loose skin and I'm riddled with scars from surgeries.  Plus, I'm bald thanks to...

I can still feel her ....

My wife was a vibrant, out-going person who made my life so beautiful just by being a part of it. She died of heart problems a few months ago, and for a while I lost myself in my grief. It felt like the sun would never shine again, but what they say is true - time does heal a broken...

Dreaming at the end of the year

It is the end of the year soon. The last few months have brought me a lot of great moments, so I feel ready to face it. I have been traveling, visiting remote places to experience things I never thought I would if I were healthy. (I have never spent almost a month tending to the farm and animals!) I...

Our choices

I met a relative two days ago. We are not very close, but I know that he's been through a lot. The new love he found after going through a divorce is now disabled because of a brain tumor. He then said she was doing better than usual, but her check-up results showed otherwise. He cried when he decided to...

Thankful

I have a lot to be thankful for and since it's so close to Thanksgiving Day, I thought I'd write it all down.
1.  Healthy and happy children and grandchildren who visit often.
2.  A dog who looks at me like I'm the best thing in the world.
3.  A kitten who cheers me up by purring and making biscuits...

Gone are the days when my single status was the biggest issue.

These holiday visits are not going like I'd hoped.  I was really looking forward to seeing my extended family who fly in for the holidays and had expected us to carry on as usual with our family traditions and fun.  However, it's clear that my terminal illness is weighing heavily on their minds and it's changed the whole dynamic.  I feel...

A Good Death

My dad used to always say that all people want two things in this world, a good life and a good death.  As a kid I found that strange, but I get it now.  Well, I've had a good life.  It's been great actually.  But what does a good death look like?  For me, I guess it means spending my...

Remember to be thankful for all you have

Recently, I participated in a volunteer event for an elderly group in the neighborhood. I spent most of the time with a lonely lady who is almost forgotten by her own family. Talking to her brought me to tears as I was strongly reminded not to take anything for granted. Some people were not lucky enough to be blessed with...

In colors

I recently found out how addicting photography is. Creating messages and videos on this website shows me that there is always something to celebrate in life regardless of how small it is. I see beauty in the weirdly-shaped clouds and the pitch-black darkness of the night sky. I see warmth in a young boy delivering newspapers in the morning and...

Memories, please stay.

It is such a pity that our brains can't remember everything forever. We struggle to remember today at the expense of yesterday. Still, it does not stop us from finding ways to help our family remember our eyes, our smile, the sound we make when we nag, and perhaps even our touch. Today, I suddenly think about how much of the...

Who or what do you turn to?

I’ve studied theater and music all my life and always had this dream for myself to become a music teacher. My passion was to teach children about music and the power it has to heal a soul. Now that I cannot work, I turn to music for comfort, for everything really. Unfortunately, I cannot go to concerts or festivals as...

Medical bills versus living your dreams

I have always had a bucket list, mainly filled with items related to travel. Places I want to visit, things I want to do. And it is a very attainable bucket list, at least, it was. I thought I'd have 50 years to complete it. Turns out, it'll be another 5 years, 7 if I'm lucky. I don't have the funds...
