Well since I began this blog I have focused around the superhero angle (seeing as I am OBB) and also around water/boat imagery. And now as I am one day away from the second round of the C-spa, I want to introduce someone new to the mix. I like to call them Captain AC – as in Captain Anti Cancer. Now I am all for company and have struggled for years to entertain myself when alone so I never say to guests but when it comes to cancer I draw the line. It is really a party for one type of thing as I wouldn’t wish this on anyone really as it is tough, gritty and intense. Yet here is Captain AC asking for permission to board the vessel.
Reluctantly I must say yes and make room on my boat.
I guess there is always strength in numbers but I find it so hard when someone else is called to this special club. Especially someone I know and love. Of course I have been incredibly positive through my journey so far and have found the humor in many elements of my situation, however at the end of the day it is still the Big C and in the words of Samantha from SATC – “Maybe cancer isn’t that funny.”
So as we both launch our boat into the sunshine and search for the peace of the endless blue ahead, I hope you will all wish us an eventful and successful journey.
