Happy Anniversary

So, today is the day. I was diagnosed with leukemia on this day ….February 24th, 2006. While this anniversary isn’t exactly a cause to celebrate, it is a day of reflection, and a day to show appreciation of many people… and things. I’ll save the real celebration for May 24th (2006) which marks my anniversary date of reaching remission.

Still in the Woods

I try to not have too much an opinion on certain topics simply because I would rather not fuel a fire that should never have been started in the first place. I am not even a fan of golf but I am a fan of people so in this situation, I feel the need to voice an opinion of Tiger Woods. I am not going to second guess, find fault, or criticize his actions or his moral compass. While I certainly don’t agree with any of it, I’d rather not dig around in his dumpster. He did what he did and his issues are now his, and his family’s to deal with.

Descartes, Lennon, and a Priest

I have recently reconnected with a few more old college friends and every time I think back to my Cabrini College days I am flooded with great memories of wonderful people and great times. Admittedly, I was not the model student or citizen back then but I wasn’t too far off track and I certainly don’t regret anything I did or didn’t do back then. I know all of my experiences have helped shape who I have become. There are two memories however that always seem to stand out as being the most meaningful that I know will remain with me forever.

Healthy triathlon guy becomes a triathlon coach for Team in Training and an advocate for the disease. The end… err, no …. To be continued….
