thoughts on hair -

My hair has come back wonderfully, and I received a multitude of compliments on it today, but I realized something else.  Normally,  I think we don't look carefully at people.  Perhaps, it would be seen as prying or not polite, but I am an open book right now, a curiosity.  I am like a baby.  People always smile at babies and go goo-goo.  They touch their heads.  It feels like a benediction.  I think there is something similar in this, and I am so happy to be alive and well that I am beaming. 

I am grateful to be able to go to the dentist.  I am grateful for life, and that is reinforced even more strongly when I am with people who have been pulling for me and following my path.  It is a good feeling, and I am hoping to keep the openness that I gained in this.  Diane and I spoke about connection yesterday, that we think the gift of cancer is the connectiveness we now feel, and the urgency to do what is ours to do.  So, today, I celebrate the gift of this year.  I think my shower tears let all this through.  I walked through the waterfall, and now, I am viewing it from the other side, and it is so beautiful with color and sparkle as I look through with eyes that thrive.
