What is #CancerRoadTrip and how did it come to be? Read this post to get the backstory!
A tweet on Twitter today got me thinking: I used to be a lot of fun.
I was always serious in my own way, but I was also the one who was always curious and game to do something. Go to Napa. Seek out that new, hot restaurant. Fly. Hike. Travel. Entertain. I never wanted to sit still.
Between cancer, surgery, house floods and business betrayal, fun has simply not been part of my repertoire for the last several years.
I want to laugh and explore. I want to forget about cancer, for an hour, a day, a month. I want to feel light and full of energy. I want to feel possibility and joy back in my life!
I want to slow down enough to feel. To not think. I want to be in love with life, with MY LIFE, again.
I want to feel light. Unencumbered, yet totally connected. I want to trade the trappings of the perfect suburban life for some adventure. I want to trade home maintenance for being homeless; worry for curiosity; disaffection for connection.

Chanel went to her new home last weekend. It will take some time for everyone to adjust. For me, I find myself without the responsibility of another living soul for the first time in 35 years.
And much to my surprise, it is positively liberating.
