For the past year and a half I’ve been battling and recovering from cancer/cancer treatments. Over that time, I’ve striven to continue posting about things I care about. However, I want to restart, sporadic or not as it may be, because I have this inner drive to write. It helps me process issues and this blog gives me a platform to choose what I want to write about.
The inspiration for this blog has not changed: my passion for social justice, journalism, and championing change in my own way. What has changed is the way I’m approaching this blog. As I recover from my stem cell transplant, I want to continue to grow as a person, not simply recover my physical abilities. Therefore, I am still going to write about issues that are important, but with a different tone—probably a personal one. This is not a newspaper, it’s a space where I can explore, write, and share about topics that matter to me.
My hope is, if you read what I write and it impacts you, that you’ll talk about it with people around you and share the conversation—or talk with me.
