Got through lung cancer. Got through chemo. Got through picking up and carrying 42 pounds of water in the house this morning.

I’ve been having vivid dreams lately, which is pretty neat. I like to wake up with interesting thoughts and old music playing out in my head.

Inspiration is coming back. I’ve missed it. When my world narrowed into rounds of chemo and recovery, blood tests and booster shots, my focus shifted inward for months.

I’ve picked up a new target shooting hobby. I rarely doom scroll anymore. There are too many interesting things to look at and do.

I don’t miss the 28 pounds I lost.
