2012 in review: Hey, I’m Only Mortal!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Their report also notes that some of my most viewed posts were from previous years and that I should consider writing about those subjects more often.

Since several of those posts were my cancer lessons, I think I prefer not to do so.

Still, maybe it’s time to get back to work on my book about the experience. I stopped writing that book when I realized I wasn’t sure of the ending — whether I was actually finished with cancer.

Of course, the real question is: Is cancer finished with me?

It’s been one year, four months and six days since my last chemo, and I still don’t know the answer. I know now that I never will. Every survivor (at least those I know) learns to live with this unanswered question. And, like everything about this disease, we each deal with that uncertainty in our own way.

Still, we’re all going to die someday. The only difference is those who have faced cancer have also had to face the surety of our own mortality.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.
