I can’t take credit for the title of today’s post. It was the last line in someone’s hilarious rant about “5 Things I Liked About Having Cancer” and made me laugh my ass off. It seemed appropriate for today. (*UPDATE 09-03-10* The author has pulled that post because he is working on a book.  le sigh)

Given my current remission the posts specific to my struggle with Hodgkin’s disease will hopefully get more sporadic. I am going to keep writing on this weblog regularly but there is going to be more “just what’s going on with me” posts. I’m going to start a new category called “Life Goes On” for posts that don’t have anything to do with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or my cancer treatments. Posts that do relate to Hodgkin’s and any changes to “what condition my condition is in” will be posted in “The Story So Far” as they have been all along.

Some subjects that might or might not get discussed from time to time in “Life Goes On”:

  • Sailboats are fun (cruising, racing, puttering, upgrading)
  • Sailboats are not fun (broken, scary weather, pain in the ass, expensive)
  • Friends and relations
  • Family history
  • Our horse
  • Our dog
  • Home maintenance
  • Thoughts on “Life, the Universe and Everything”

That’s definitely not an exhaustive list but at least it’s what comes to mind at the moment.

“Living under a cloud of black…utter a single word and watch the lightning strike…feel the roar of the thunder. Periods of calm are like tears dripping from a rainbow…and life goes on”.
Donna A. Favours

“The Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything is requested of the supercomputer Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42. Unfortunately, The Ultimate Question itself is unknown.”
A synopsis of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
