Hi, and welcome! If you’re reading this then I have successfully done something technical: transferred a Caringbridge site to a blog. Whew, that was hard. No really. Computers are just not my jam, I’m sad to admit. A huge thank you my friend Christine, who is that rare combination of creative and tech-savvy, for helping me find my way in the blogosphere.
“Interrupted Stories?” Ah yes, the title. I explain it a little in the “About” page on here (yes! I created a page!! I had to rest afterwards. It hurt my brain), but basically it came out of the idea that we think we’re living one story, only to have life chuck a major plot twist at us. The story we thought we were living, or were planning on living, gets hijacked and we have to find our way in a new story. And find a way to make it our own. For those of us type A, planner people, this can be particularly challenging, but it can also be an interesting exercise too. And holy cow, it can be funny.
If you’re new to this blog, you should know that I like to laugh. And I tend to see things through a humorous lens. Yes, cancer is serious business, but I am very firm in my resolve to not let it take away who I am. I will not give it that kind of power over my life. I definitely have my somber moments – we all do – and I will share them as honestly as I know how, but when things crack me up I’m not going to hesitate to tell you about it. Because the only thing better than laughing is laughing with friends.
So thanks for making the switch to the blog, my awesome friends. I love having you along for the ride.
