Portland, Oregon's Cancer Survivorship and Bodywork Zine by Compassion Arts PDX, LLC
What if I had time to fully
take care of myself?
To give myself space to infuse dance
into the day? To sit and breath and
watch the river flow?
To cook lovely food, spend time laughing
with friends, and time
for rest and for being alone…
How would that change a life?
Self-care while exploring aloneness.

I also learned, on the Supermoon, while watching Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog and Serenity at the Bagdad Theatre, that Joss Whedon and I share the same birthday. Funny, that.

“I feel young….” says Kirk… “I feel young…”
