(3) A Volatile Combination…

IMG_0906Most of you know that I am a writer.  Now I have a blog.  AND there are dozens of you who have said you will read what I write. Wow! That’s why I promise that I will stick to the topic and I will not post something every hour (even though I’m certain it would be extremely interesting).

The picture included with this post features a plant given to me by Ann, Tim, and Lauren (Ann is Eileen’s sister, Tim is her husband, and Lauren is their daughter, my niece). I was struck by the thought that this amazing plant came into my life solely because I have bladder cancer. I’m certain Buddha or a Zen Master would smile and say that on balance, I am a very lucky person. I would readily agree.  Thank you Ann, Tim, and Lauren.

  1. Mike & Eileen, you are an incredible couple and great friends.
    Here is a quote from Thomas Moore that perfectly describes what both of you mean to us.
    “We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
    I would say your new blog is a real conversation with all of us.
    Love, John and Julie.

  2. Mike, we are already enjoying your posts. You manage to pepper everything you write with wit and humor. Thanks for letting us join in your process, we are with you all the way!

  3. Mike, Can’t help but worry… and yet I am optimistic that medical science and your normally positive spirit will get you through this ordeal. And now you have another BLOG follower. Speedy and all that, Mike. xo Fran
