Today’s edition of “how to beat up cancer” using visualization and mental imagery goes like this. On my midday run today, I envisioned taking my leukemia out for a run on a leash. We start out stride by stride but the leukemia soon trails a little behind me, then a little more. It starts to look distressed. So I run faster. As I pick up my speed, it drops to the ground and I’m now dragging it by the leash as it bounces out of control up and down off of the concrete; bruised, tattered, and bloody. So I grab a tighter hold, run faster and look it in the eyes and smile and say “how are ya making out down there? Ya big dummy”.
It was a great run.
