“Derek” has a blog too. It is a little different than mine though. He is battling stage 4 colon cancer. My son met him last weekend and said, “He is just one of those amazing people you meet in life, a great, great guy who you just don’t understand why something like this would happen to him…either way he is actually doing great and for now the cancer is somewhat controlled.”
In his latest blog entry on April 27, 2013, he asks that we all ponder the following question… “Really think about it ~ if you were living month to month, what would you do? I don’t want to know what you’d want to do – I want you to think about what you’d actually do.”
I’ve thought about this quite a bit over the last week since I started reading through his story and would have to respond that I would do exactly what I am doing. I would continue to commune with nature on our rivers, meet the amazing people who are doing the same, write about my experiences, and hook up with my family and friends whenever I could. I think the answer to that question changes at difference times in your life, but that’s my story for now, and I’m sticking to it.
Here is his blog and his journey over the last two years. http://www.lifessentences.com
