I am a retired professor of Language and Literacy with a specialty in teaching writing. At its core, writing is a powerful way of thinking about anything. It is a way to make visual that which is floating around is phrases and and bits of information yet to be synthesized into something accessible. So when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer I decided to blog about my journey. The blog helps me put my thoughts into first draft form, to actually see what I am thinking. Writing helps me get a grip on this existential life. If, by some chance, the writing helps you then it is an added bonus.
