This, the last of my memoirs (www.biostories.com), was a prelude to writing a plethora of books and articles about healing and wholeness back in 2002. I was glad I had the stomach for it, and the muscle.
Now, I've come full-circle and I am writing once again on these themes. To date I've had a number of cancer-related poems accepted for publication and I've found myself writing articles on everything from colonoscopies to fitness to self-given testicular exams (important for younger men).
My heavy-lifting days are behind me, but I'm producing language. No more backspacing. Everything in life is space bar and TAB.
And as I get older, I know how to use all of the letters on the keyboard.
