Do trousers matter? – 314/366 (catch up)

Other than my clothes, what was with me the majority of the day?

It would be the gold hoop in my left ear. An extra earring in honor/memory of my grandfather who died on a boat and really loved sailing.  (more about this story; here and here)

an invincible summer – 313/366 (catch up)

What is my greatest strength?

I want to say nothing, I was raised that way. However, I would say that my strengths reside in my willingness to be myself, as glorious and painful as that may be.

dying in the night – 312/366 (catch up)

What do I want to tell myself in one year?

I guess at this point it would be;

You now have three years of remission.

How do others get past that? Time? ignore those panic driven moments? I am thankful that they are few and far between… but it, that feeling, hangs there at its ghoul gate waiting to scare me the every chance it gets.

“The year is dying in the night.”
