Columbia, SC...for now
Saluton mondo! The same man who will be at your side & stay at your side. A calming figure I have become, with a strong nurturing side & instinctively protective to those I care for. Seeded with a soft & kind heart I have a great respect for life & for nature. I am amalgamated by maturing experiences & creative thinking, also compensating & practical, seeking solutions rather than dwell on long lasting arguments. Yet I am simple in some ways, a boy at heart, feeling that warmth of a naive joyous tingle within.
I truly understand the meaning of living life to the fullest - I am a cancer survivor & have been in remission since February 17th of 1999. A 40-something cancer survivor that happens to be a single, gay male trying to find his way in this beautiful but crazy world of learning, living, loving, working, & surviving. I work as a nurse technician at a local hospital and am currently pursuing my BSN at a local university. Working full-time and in school full-time! When I have any spare time, I enjoy languages & I am trying to learn to play Classical guitar!
On an added note, here is the incantation that got me through many long days and nights in the fight against cancer. It is the Bene Gesserit "Litany Against Fear" from Frank Herbert's Dune: "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
I hope you enjoy my first attempt at blogging. Thank you. Namaste'
