Resolution 2007

8 years ago AD (after diagnosis):  

No radiation

No chemo

Go thru lumpectomy like robot

Don’t give the tumour any meaning

Tell people when they piss you off and when you love them

Renounce useless guilt

Write a book about working with emotions through the medium of body movement

Have mind-blowing sex

Today: Resolution 2015

“Turn attention away from circumstances

Listen for the music of my being

Launch myself as a long line into the world.”

(my resolution exactly but plagiarized and adapted

from Zander’s , Art of Possibility, p. 199 )

 Have mind-blowing sex ; )

And for you:

Take out another notebook,                                                                                                         Pick up another pen, and just                                                                                                       write, just write, just write.

In the middle of the world,                                                                                                               make one positive step.

In the centre of chaos, make                                                                                                               one  definitive act.

Just write.

Say yes, stay alive, be awake.

Just write. Just write. Just write.
