As the title says this blog is one man’s effort to make sense out of his journey fighting melanoma. I have enjoyed reading some of my fellow melanoma warriors’ blogs and thought it might be an interesting way to share what this journey has been like for me. If you find this interesting great, if not that’s great also. Selfishly this is more about me getting this out and moving on from being a cancer patient to being a cancer survivor.

Let’s clear up a few things. Yes, I know how to use spell check and no I don’t always use it. I majored in accounting, not english. I have always been a below average writer, which is why I find the therapeutic value of doing this surprising. I think for this blog to make any sense you pretty much have to go to the archive and start from the beginning which is titled “Life Is Good”

I am not a doctor or medial professional of any type. My blog is not endorsed by any medical professional or facility mentioned in it. Every decision I have made about my care was done after careful consultation with my medical team. Decisions I have made were right for me but should not in any instance be considered right for anybody else. I don't recommend taking medical advice from an accountant.

Discovering The Sea Shell

Inspiration can come from surprising places sometimes.   I stumbled upon this blog last week when somebody I follow on Twitter retweeted it.   I find it interesting to read and this weekend I keep  reading and rereading this particular post.  I find this poem very interesting and it really makes me think.   It reminded me of my freshman year in college when one of my professors would sit with me and help me while I butchered some classic poetry.   He really opened up a new world for me.  I tweeted to the author of the blog this am after posted this picture.  Last week was my turn to choke down the CT contrast dye.   Click on the link below to find the blog.
