I agree Dominic.

Some people mistakenly call our experiences spiritual.  It's all a biological reaction to our need to nurture something.  Why is that not wonderful in itself?  What they don't realize is that we respond to life and renewal.  By planting, making cuttings, and putting in seeds, we create feelings within and an environment around us, which are healing and enable us to be renewed.  It's an amazing thing to see that progress in our plants, and it gives us all hope.

Joan, I have about 20 robust little trees on my deck now, that 3 months ago were dry-looking sticks, prunings with no leaves or roots.  Now they are vigorous young trees, with big green leaves and healthy roots.  If they can make that kind of progress, maybe I can too.  They give me some hope, anyway.

Im glad I have the garden and yard to lose myself in after work and on days off.  It's the most healing place I can be.

I'm taking an oral chemo that has much much less side effect than the old ones.  No radiation.  Glad I have insurance to pay for it - so I better keep my employer happy, so I can keep the insurance!

Hoping you are well as well.  A nap sounds great!

Daniel, I know you have the wisdom and experience to know your own limits. I am concerned about you going back on a full-time schedule. I understand what you say about loss of energy. I have the privelege of napping and I hope you can do that, even as you are on the job. 

May I ask, and you are free to decline to answer, are you having chemo or radiation?

Amer, I was puzzled by the man's demeanor, but never saw him as angry, just aggressive. When he ran back toward me he was all smiles and chatter.
In retrospect, I think he knew he couldn't explain so that I would understand so he did what every good problem solver does, he thought and took action. It was a wonderful experience and I have the fruits of his labor.

That is very quick to go back to work, Sentient! Have a good time but take care!

Comment by Dominic Florio on April 28, 2013 at 10:38pm

I'm not an expert on bees, but I do know a thing or two about queens.

Comment by Daniel W on April 28, 2013 at 9:44pm

Amer, thanks for asking.  Tomorrow I return to my former full work schedule.  So I guess I'm OK.  Still have frequent  times when I feel like all of my energy has drained out.  But getting better.

Joan, I love that story of your Hollyhocks from Turkey.  It's a wonderful memory. 

Dominic, you may be right about the queen.  I'm still on a steep learning curve with the honeybees.

Joan, you were picking the unripened seeds, perhaps that was what angered the man.

Sentient how are you. Hope you are recovering well. Good times after horrible ones are the most memorable in our lives. Wish a very happy spring to you and your bees.

Joan, I like your Hollyhock story.
