Sometimes you are forced to take a step back in order to move forward.

For once in my life I am surrounding myself with people who want to be with me, instead of chasing ghosts. A realization of mortality will do this to you. You find yourself grasping the present with frantic enthusiasm.

I have no more illusions.

Besides, who needs illusions with sunsets like these?

Your tumour gets weaker.
Your bullshit detector gets stronger.

ya...sometimes we have to have things taken away from us to see what we do have and what is real. In that...it builds us into a new person. A 2nd chance at a start to a new life.
A lesson that gives new eyes, new mind and heart.
